Don’t delay in planning for your future. To protect yourself and your loved ones in the future, we can help you today to establish a plan to handle your health and financial interests in the event you are unable to communicate or make decisions for yourself, and also a plan for preserving and ultimately distributing your assets to your heirs.
Advance Health Care Directives
An Advance Health Care Directive, a Financial Power of Attorney, and a Health Care Power of Attorney are essential tools that allow you to control your financial and physical well-being at a time when you may be unable to communicate your wishes or make decisions for yourself. These plans must be in place before the need arises, and we can help you simplify those difficult decisions.
A well designed estate plan is the best way to avoid the expense and complications of probate. The proper use of available estate planning tools such as wills, trusts, gifts, and business plans can minimize the tax burden to your heirs and ease the transfer of assets. It is never too early to establish an estate plan.
One of the best ways to help assure that your assets will be managed for your family, as you intended, is to develop a comprehensive estate plan designed to meet your individual needs. The estate planning process may involve our working with your financial, tax and legal advisors to develop a customized estate plan.
