Living Wills

Last Will and Testament and Trust Your Last Will and Testament is the instrument used to transfer your assets and property to your heirs in the way that you would prefer they are transferred. The executor of your will is the person who will ensure that your will is followed.

Estates and Probate

Estates and Probate When a loved one passes away, it is a good idea to consult with an attorney right away. There may be nothing that needs to be done, but often you find that there are things that need to be revised or updated, such as a last will and testament. We recommend that you have a death certificate submitted to your attorney so that there is a copy on file, and you know exactly where the information is. Probate occurs when there is an asset without an assigned beneficiary. The situation may vary for several reasons

Power of Attorney

Power of Attorney A business power of attorney will help you take care of yourself should you become disabled. The typical situation involves elderly parents who, though still mobile, do not have the presence of mind that they used to. A power of attorney allows a trusted loved one or associate to handle your affairs when you are no longer able to make important decisions. This is especially important when children do not see eye-to-eye and things get emotional. As the person holding power of attorney, you must keep complete records of this powerful role. The person who holds the power should be completely trustworthy because they can be useful, though dangerous, when handling your assets.
