Wills, Trusts, & Estate Planning

A will is possibly the most common document that comes to mind when you think of estate planning. A will is a document that takes effect after a person passes away.

Unique Families

Each family is unique. Estate Planning cannot be done as a “one size” fits all and hope that it serves your needs for the next 20 years. The world changes and people change.

Asset Protection

Asset protection planning is defensive estate planning. In other words, asset protection is developing a successful plan to protect your assets, provide for your family’s financial security,  your children’s future, your business’ succession and  retirement.

Probate & Trust Administration

Probate is a lawsuit filed in a local court after the client passes away. The Court determines the validity of the Will and oversees the appointment of the executor.  Simply stated, it is the legal process of settling an estate under the jurisdiction of the Probate Court.
