Estate / Will Planning

Estate planning is the process of arranging for the management and disposal of a person’s estate during their lifetime and after death. Our firm assists clients in creating comprehensive estate plans tailored to their unique needs and circumstances. This may involve drafting wills, establishing trusts, designating beneficiaries, minimizing estate taxes, and planning for incapacity through the creation of powers of attorney and advance directives. We work closely with clients to ensure that their assets are protected and their wishes are carried out according to their specifications.
