What We Do
Estate Planning is the protection of assets and designation of authority to others in
the event of incapacity.
The basic documents involved in Estate
Planning are the Last Will and Testament,
Living Will, Power of Attorney,
Healthcare Surrogate and Trusts.
Guardianship is needed when an
incapacitated adult or minor child(ren)
who cannot care for themselves require
a legal guardian to assume primary care
for that person(s) and/or their
Guardianship is determined in court.
Probate is addressed after an
individual passes away. If there
was a valid Last Will and Testament,
the estate is administered accordingly.
If there was not a valid Last Will
and Testament, the individual has
died intestate and the estate is
administered according to
Probate is administered in court.
