Wills and Testaments
The first thing people think of when it comes to estate planning is your will. It’s the foundation of the entire estate plan. It gives the directives on how everything is to be split amongst all the people who were important in your life. This document also names the person you believe is responsible enough to handle the duties of being the executor of the will, or the person in charge of following through on the wishes. A will also appoint the guardian of any children who are still minors at the time of death.
To ensure that your wishes are followed your will must be filed with the court, validly executed, cover your entire estate, and offer an accurate reflection of your intentions for your estate.
We can help you make sure all of this is done in the best way possible so all is taken care of.

If you have a sizeable estate and you want to completely take the guesswork out of the process setting up a trust is a phenomenal idea. By setting up a trust, you avoid the long and tedious probate process so your beneficiaries will receive their money and items faster than a situation with only a will.
They are also completely confidential. So, while your will goes on the public record and can be accessed by anyone who is looking, a trust never has to be revealed.
These are official documents that state your wishes during a medical emergency. You can refuse life-saving measures, make determinations about when and for how long you’ll be kept alive via artificial means, and more.
Anything having to do with your medical care, in the case you were incapacitated, can be placed in an advance directive. Making sure these are legally and validly executed takes so much pressure off the family and friends who will suffer from making these decisions if you haven’t made a plan. If everyone knows your wishes there is no guesswork.
