estate planning

Estate Planning is a fascinating and challenging area of the law. It requires attention to complex legal and tax issues; yet, more so than any other area of the law, it is driven by personal circumstances and taps into the most intimate, guarded and feared areas of our lives – family, money, and death.

Estate plans are as diverse as the individuals who create them. We work closely with our clients to personally design estate plans that meet their unique needs, wishes and circumstances. Estate planning needs range from the most basic and straightforward to the extraordinarily complex. We design estate plans tailored to meet clients' specific needs and desires for the transfer of their assets. Our goal is to make the estate planning process “painless” and meaningful for our clients, and to leave them with peace of mind when the process is complete.

Our comprehensive estate planning practice includes the following areas:

Wills (Basic to Complex)

Revocable Living Trusts (Basic to Complex)

Irrevocable Trusts

Cabin Trusts

Charitable Gift Planning

Antenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

Financial Powers of Attorney
