Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the protection and/or disposal of assets during a person's life, in the event of incapacity, and upon death. The goals of estate planning include avoiding probate and maximizing the value of a person's estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. Estate planning is more than just creating a will; it often involves the creation of a trust, powers of attorney for healthcare and financial matters, and nomination of conservator in the case of incapacity, among other things.

We know that each client's situation is unique and requires attention to detail in planning to ensure the client's exact wishes are carried out.
