Wills & Estates
A properly planned estate can save you and your family considerable expense and distress upon death or incapacity. We have an experienced group of estate lawyers who have taken an active role in community and professional education on estate law. We can assist you in achieving your goals whether it be drafting a will or trust, planning for incapacity with the use of an enduring power of attorney and a personal ‘directive’, or by a restructuring of your holdings. The administration of an estate requires special skills particularly given the complexity of today’s tax laws. We work together with your personal representative to ensure that your estate is managed carefully and distributed expeditiously and in accordance with your wishes.
