Wills, Trusts & Estate Plans
Protect your family with a personalized, comprehensive, organized estate plan.
Everyone has "an estate," that just means everything you have no matter how little or how much. Estate planning is not just for ultra high net worth individuals. Every adult needs at least a basic estate plan.
It's not about how much you have; it's about how much you care.™
Your estate plan can help:
- put your legal and financial affairs in order
- ensure that your medical and end of life wishes are respectfully followed and less likely to cause your loved ones additional pain or stress
- appoint temporary emergency guardians and permanent legal guardians for your minor children
- provide practical parental guidance fo your children’s caregivers in the event of an emergency
- provide practical, financial, and emotional gifts, guidance and support for your growing and grown children, grandchildren, and other surviving loved ones
- provide guidance and security for your loved ones, no matter what challenging circumstances may lay ahead
- provide for the continued, loving care of your family pets
- your surviving loved ones avoid the need to go through the time-consuming, public, expensive probate court probate process
- minimize what you pay in estate taxes to leave your hard-earned assets to the people and charities of your choosing when and how you see fit
