Learn more about estate planning:

  • ProbateIf someone in your family did not name a beneficiary for their assets, their property will need to be distributed by Probate Court. We can help you deal with the probate court when a loved one has died, or create a will that mitigates the expenses of probate for your own estate.
  • Wills A will ensures that your property will be distributed as you desire. It is important to create a will that leaves no stone unturned so that none of your instructions will be challenged when the will is presented to your family.
  • Trusts A trust can replace the need for a will in certain cases. One of the primary differences between a trust and a will is that a trust can be enacted while you are still living. Our attorney can help you determine whether or not creating a trust is the right option for you.
  • Revocable/Irrevocable Trusts – In a revocable trust, the grantor retains control of his or her assets. However, an irrevocable trust can help you avoid capital gains and estate taxes. Our attorney can help you determine which is the right option for your unique situation.
  • Health Care Power of Attorney (Proxy) – A designated agent will have the power to make decisions about your health, including life-sustaining health care decisions, on your behalf should you no longer be able to make such decisions on your own.
  • Financial Power of Attorney – Financial power of attorney appoints an agent to make financial decisions on your behalf, including on behalf of your estate, should you become injured, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to make financial decisions on your own.

It’s never too early to start planning ahead. Call (401) 216-4188 to start discussing your estate plan.
