With intuitive expertise, our firm’s attorneys will guide you through the estate planning process with a series of carefully planned questions designed to help you consider what kind of legacy you want to leave behind for loved ones and for organizations that are meaningful to you. This is your final opportunity to leave the people and causes you care about a final gift, one that represents who you are and what sort of future you envision.
At the same time, this is an opportunity to take stock of your assets and determine what you will use and what you will set aside. It’s also an ideal time to make your final wishes clear in terms of end-of-life care, to delegate powers of attorney, and to appoint an executor. We can strategize the best way to organize your assets to make it as easy as possible for your estate plan to be administered after your death.
