Estate Planning and Probate

Our goal is to create the best estate package, based on your present and future assets, to avoid or limit probate taxes on your estate and your heirs. ·

  • Will - A Will, also known as a Last Will and Testament, is a key ingredient in estate planning for you. It allows you to choose who receives your personal and real property upon your death.
  • Power of Attorney - A power of attorney gives you the benefit of deciding who gets to make health and/or financial decisions on your behalf, should you be unable to do so.
  • Trust - A Trust is a property interest held by one person or entity for the benefit of another person or entity.
