Estate Planning Tools
In order to ensure that your future is protected, our firm determines which estate planning tools will be most beneficial for you and uses them when possible. Some of the tools available include:
- Powers of attorney: Anyone who is designated as your power of attorney can act on your behalf, making decisions and transactions that are in your best interests if you are unable to do so yourself due to incapacitation or another situation. A medical power of attorney allows someone to make medical decisions for you, while a financial power of attorney can handle bills and other money-related issues for you.
- Advance health care directives: This type of document is designed to convey your wishes for your medical care in the event that you cannot communicate them yourself. Medical professionals are to follow the directions in a health care directive, and the person who holds your medical power of attorney is obligated to act according to this document as well.
In addition to handling general estate planning matters, our firm also provides representation when there are disputes over a trust or estate that lead to litigation.
Business Succession Planning
As part of our estate planning practice, we also assist with business succession planning. As a prudent business owner, addressing the unexpected is good business; we can help you make decisions to plan ahead should you suddenly become unable to run your business due to incapacity or death. Depending on the nature of your business, we can help you tailor a plan that will give you confidence that your wishes will be followed.
