We are both attorneys and parents who intimately understand the importance that estate and trust documents reflect our values and desires so that they can speak for us when we cannot. Decisions around guardianship, asset distribution, and healthcare directives are uncomfortable and even contentious for parents often causing many of us not to make decisions.
Plan Ahead, Even If You Don't Think You Need To Yet
Failure to make a decision is a decision, and sadly we have seen the unintended outcomes when people put off these difficult yet critical decisions. Without individualized family estate and wealth planning, when the unthinkable happens, judges will dictate what happens to your children and assets which may not align with your wishes and values.
To avoid this outcome, we compassionately and expertly guide our clients through the discomfort to a place of empowered decision making, with the result being individualized estate and trust plans and supporting documents that provide invaluable peace of mind.
One size does not fit all when it comes to family estate and wealth planning. We go beyond a will to explore your needs for revocable living trusts, guardianship paperwork, advanced health care directives, pet trusts, and charitable trusts.
