The Estate Planning Process

Our attorneys will work closely with you to understand your family, your financial situation, your values and your goals. Then we will draft documents that can help you achieve your goals. At a minimum, this should include a will, a health care proxy and power of attorney. We can also address more challenging situations, such as the creation of a special needs trust for a disabled adult child, planning for retirement or other concerns. When your family and financial situations change, we can update your estate plan and documents for a reasonable fee.
