Estate Planning and POAs

Estate Planning

A comprehensive estate plan is not limited to trusts and wills which provide for the transfer of assets after death. Thoughtful estate planning can include provisions for minor children as well as a clear expression of a person’s wishes regarding medical treatment 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 such as 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. In contrast, the AHCD appoints an agent to grant consent in medical treatment matters during your incapacity as well as a living will provision in the event that you don 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 implantation AHCD and Durable Powers of Attorney. Our firm is known for our personal approach to each client. We give every client our undivided attention and respond quickly and thoroughly to questions and requests for advice. It is important to make your own decisions regarding your health care and the management of your financial affairs. We can help you arrange these matters with full awareness of the meaning and consequences of the testamentary documents that you create.
