Local and Knowledgeable Estate Planning Attorney

Planning for incapacity, long-term care and your estate is more than just the preparation of documents. It’s about a plan for your assets, responsibilities and legacy, so you can have peace of mind knowing that you and your family will be taken care of. Estate planning involves a thorough understanding of a client’s physical and mental health, financial profile, family history and current family dynamics. A proper estate plan is not one size fits all. We work together to develop a plan for the management of your finances if you become unable to do so and for the distribution of your assets when you pass away which is based on your unique circumstances and goals. You have worked hard for what you have, and we want to help you protect it.

COVID-19 PREPAREDNESS: At the present time we are offering appointments by phone or video conferencing. Estate planning documents can be signed and notarized remotely for the safety of our clients. Please call our office for further details.
