Wills and Estate Planning

Wills and Estate Planning

We all want to have a solid plan for our families and our loved ones, but it is easy to defer getting our affairs in order to a later time. It’s usually something everyone puts off as the idea of starting can be stressful. At the same time, it is incredibly important that your will and estate plan be well prepared and based on your personal circumstances. Doing it yourself or downloading a form are approaches that can leave holes.

We guide you through the process, take time to understand your goals, and ensure that your plan covers all the requirements and documentation. We will work with your accountant or financial advisor to ensure we have all the information. Your peace of mind is our top goal as we prepare the requirements you need including:

  • Wills
  • Probate and administration of estates
  • Power of attorney
  • Heath care directives
  • Trusts
