Why You Need an Estate Lawyer
Our estate planning attorneys can draft any document you might need relating to your estate planning, including writing wills and establishing trusts. We work closely with you and your family to understand your needs and how to create financial stability and assurance for the future.
Legal issues we address include:
- Power of Attorney
- Healthcare Directive
- Estate Administration
Hiring a lawyer to plan for your estate after you pass away is the best way to reduce the risk of family disputes or legal ambiguity after your death. Outlining your will, trust, or estate reduces the chances of litigation over your estate later on.

Securing Your Children’s Future With Estate Planning
We can help you ensure that you have a financial plan in place for your children before they become adults by addressing such matters as their education, care, safety, and financial stability if you can no longer provide for them. Through estate planning, you can designate someone to retain custody over your children if something happens to you in a manner that is legally binding.
Guardianship is more than just a legal issue. You may want to designate a guardian that has a close personal relationship with your family. However, in a legal battle, if you have not legally set up a designated guardian for your children, a judge may not understand that relationship and choose another guardian for your children—someone you may have never chosen.
Consider Both the Pros and Cons of a Power of Attorney
You can choose a power of attorney or allow the court to appoint one on your behalf, should it become necessary for any reason. The appointed party is called an attorney in fact. We can help you enact a power of attorney now, at your own convenience, when you are physically, mentally, and emotionally able to do so.
Through power of attorney, you authorize another trusted individual to act on your behalf in situations such as:
- Signing leases
- Buying or selling real estate
- Accessing your safe deposit box
- Managing your Social Security income
- Paying your doctors
