Estate Planning
Legal Services
Probate & Decedent Estates
Estate Planning is an important responsibility for all of us to protect our families and safeguard our assets. None of us want to see our assets disappear after spending most of our working lives acquiring them. Some of us have spouses and children for whom we wish to provide after we’re gone. We may have minor children or dependent parents who will need someone to manage their financial affairs upon our death.

Our Estate Plan package:
- Revocable or Living Trust
- Pour Over Will 
- Durable Power of Attorney for asset management
Advance Health Care Directive for healthcare decisions
Deed to transfer 1 property to Trust
Certification of Trust required by most financial institution
