A comprehensive estate plan is not limited to trusts and wills that provide for the transfer of assets after death. Thoughtful estate planning includes provisions for minor children, and a clear expression of a person’s wishes regarding medical treatment to be given in the event that a patient cannot clearly state his or her wishes. We offer fixed-rate estate planning that includes the discussion and preparation of testamentary instruments including wills, trusts, Durable Powers of Attorney, and Advance Health Care Directives (AHCD).
Powers of Attorney
In the event that you are incapacitated, the Durable Power of Attorney will allow your designated representative to act on your behalf in financial affairs, whereas the AHCD appoints an agent to grant consent in medical treatment matters during your incapacity and also includes a so-called living will provision in the event you do not wish to be kept alive by artificial means.
Our estate planning services include ample time for explanation of the purposes, features, and means of implementation of Advance Health Care Directives (AHCD) and Durable Powers of Attorney. In our practice, we are known for our personal approach to each client. We give every client our undivided attention, and respond quickly and thoroughly to requests for information or advice.
It is important to make your own decisions regarding health care and management of your financial affairs. We can help you do this with full awareness of the meaning and consequences of the testamentary documents that you create.
