Estate Planning


Estate Planning is essential for everyone who owns property and/or has minor children in order to insure that your property is passed on in the maximum amount to those whom you designate.

With an Estate Plan you can lessen or avoid financial losses to your estate from taxes and court fees and make sure that your property is distributed quickly, without obstruction from anyone.

  • Revocable and irrevocable Trusts

  • "Pour-Over" Wills

  • Durable Powers of Attorney for Finances

  • Durable Powers of Attorney for Healthcare

  • Advance Directive to Physicians

  • Transfer of Real Property to your Trust

  • Certification of Trust


​The Probate process can be confusing, expensive and complex. It is completely unnecessary so long as you have a trust in place. With Probates, grieving families are left trying to find their way through the legal, financial and administrative aspects of the courts and the estate.


If you are responsible for probate of an estate or you are an intended beneficiary, it is important to get a conscientious attorney to help guide you through this complicated process quickly and cost effectively.
