Estate Planning & Wills

When you are ready to create your will, we will work with you to create an estate plan. By working with us to determine which possessions you would like to give away and to whom, we can ensure you the peace of mind that, at the time your will is needed, your desires will be executed properly. By choosing experienced attorneys, you can prevent any contestants to your will that can cause stress and tension among your family and friends.

  • Last Will & Testament
    • The basic document that modifies the legal mandated distribution of your property. Your Last Will & Testament is your written, published decision of to whom you want your assets to be given to.
  • Power of Attorney
    • Our team can help you to determine who will be your power of attorney. Creating a power of attorney document will reduce unnecessary stress should you reach a point where you are unable to make decisions for yourself.
  • Trusts
    • A living trust protects and manages your property while you are living and designates a successor trustee who will then handle your property if you reach a point where you are no longer able. Creating a living trust removes the need for a judge and therefore avoids probate.


Probate involves a judge legally validating a will and settling the deceased’s estate. If the deceased did not create a will or it is determined invalid, the estate will be distributed among the closest relatives as designated by state law. Our staff can assist you through this process and ensure everything proceeds smoothly.

We understand that estate-planning and everything it involves can be a difficult task legally and emotionally. Our clients will have our support, guidance and respect every step of the way.
