Probate and Estate Planning
Estate planning encompasses everything from collecting information about the assets you own to planning how you wish for those assets to pass at death. Estate planning includes, but is not limited to, the preparation of Wills, Trusts, Durable Powers of Attorney, and Health Care Powers of Attorneys (Advance Health Care Directives). Estate planning can be simple or complex. Every situation is unique; therefore, it is important to discuss your objectives, assets, and family situations in order to assess what documents are necessary to implement your objectives.
Probate matters also include the creation of guardianships and conservatorships for persons who are unable to oversee their personal well-being or financial affairs for themselves. Often times, these cases are brought about by a concerned spouse, family member, or close friend of the person in need of a guardian or conservator.
