Experienced Help For Your Estate Planning Needs
Estate planning can help ensure that the court and your beneficiaries know your wishes as they relate to your finances, and health care and estate administration.

I can also update it throughout the years to ensure that it complies with state and federal laws, and ensure that it evolves as your family situation changes.

Who Needs An Estate Plan?
Estate planning is for more than just the elderly. Significant life events that can take place in your and your beneficiaries’ lives that call for a plan can include:
- The birth of a child or adoption
- Real estate acquisition
- Health problems
Some people mistakenly assume that because they do not own significant assets, they do not need a plan. Do not be fooled. Estate planning is still crucial even if you do not have a high-asset estate. For example, if you have minor children, you can use an estate plan to decide who will be their legal guardians if anything happens to you. You can also leave written instructions for the medical care you will receive if you become incapacitated.
