Wills & Trusts/Elder Law
Your family deserves to benefit from the assets you have worked hard to accumulate. We will make every effort to assure that your family's assets will be disbursed in exactly the way you feel is best.
Effective estate planning and estate administration methods can protect your loved ones and your assets for the future. Our firm is dedicated to providing the legal services your family needs. We take a thorough, faith-based approach to estate planning and estate administration.
Planning for the Future
Without a thorough estate plan, taxes, funeral costs, and other expenses can eat away at your estate. We will listen to your concerns and help you create an estate plan that maximizes the benefit to your family. We will explore various estate planning tools such as:
- Last will and testament
- Financial Powers of Attorney
- Healthcare Powers of Attorney, which include "Living Wills"
- Lifetime gifts & gift planning
- Medicaid planning
- 1031 property exchanges
Every family has unique estate planning needs. Parents of small children often ask themselves, "Who will care for my children if I were to pass away tomorrow?" On the other hand, elderly members of our community often struggle to protect their assets while seeking the medical treatment they need. Never act out of ignorance, fear, or due to a pressure salesperson. Sit down with trusted advisors. We will do everything we can to meet your estate planning goals.
Guiding You Through Probate
Estate administration can be a difficult endeavor, especially if you are struggling with the loss of a loved one. We will help you understand your obligations as the personal representative of an estate and help you accomplish the necessary tasks.
Tensions can run high during this time. Our goal is to assist families in maintaining a good relationship during this stressful period. At times that is not possible and we have extensive experience representing individuals in estate litigation, including will contests and challenges to improper use of powers of attorney.
