Estate Planning

Everyone, regardless of age or financial circumstances, can benefit from some legal planning designed to address potential medical and end of life care as well as estate issues. Estate planning can be a daunting prospect, but going without it may leave your relatives or the court system to decide important questions such as the following:
  • if you become incapacitated, who should make health care decisions for you?
  • who should handle your financial affairs if you become unable to do so?
  • if you should become terminally ill or permanently unconscious, what are your wishes are regarding the use of life-sustaining treatment?
  • how would you like the assets of your estate distributed?
  • do you want to direct that certain items, real estate or other assets in your estate go to specific people?
  • who will be responsible for effecting the terms of your will?
  • if you leave behind minor children, who will take care of them, and do you want to set aside assets to help pay for those costs?
  • do you have any specific wishes with regards to funeral arrangements?
