Protection for You and Your Family
If your goal is to avoid probate when you die and to avoid guardianship court if you lose your mind, then our Estate Planning Department can prepare documents to satisfy your goals. Estate Planning includes the formation of revocable living trusts, wills, powers of attorney, advance directives or health care powers of attorney.
While the documents are important, they are the result of applying the law to your personal situation with the help of a licensed attorney who can give you actual legal advice. In other words, we don’t use “form” documents. The attorney ensures your goals are met by carefully crafts each plan to your individual life.
