Wills, Trusts & Estate Planning

Everyone age eighteen years and older with the necessary capacity should have a Will, Power of Attorney and Health Care Proxy.  Plain and simple. When these documents are in place, you and your family can rest easy, knowing you have the basic documents in place so you are prepared when life throws you a curveball.  Additional planning is also available.

My goal is to make this easy and efficient for you, so you can call in, get it done, and feel better knowing you have set plans in place for now and into the future!  As life evolves, so will your plans.  We will build a long-term relationship to ensure your are always as best prepared as possible.

What is Estate Planning anyway?

Estate planning means taking care of yourself, your loved ones, business interests and entities you care about for now and the future.  It is a mix of creativity, legal knowledge, hard work and fun!  It really is a time to learn about your options that will benefit you, your family, your loved ones, your business interests and charities.  Estate planning is rewarding and incredibly important.  So important, in fact, that in a perfect world, everyone the age of eighteen years or older with the necessary capacity should have their Will, power of attorney and health care proxy/living will in place.

This work cannot be done in a vacuum, so we will work together so I can learn about you, your family, your goals and any number of other factors in working through an estate plan that works for you.  I also work with other professionals to meet your needs, such as financial advisors, accountants, business brokers, insurance agents, real estate agents and more. These professionals can be ones you already work with, or ones I have connections with.
