ESTATE PLANNING & GUARDIANSHIP
WILLS AND TESTAMENT
A last Will documents and communicates your final wishes upon death ensuring your loved ones are properly taken care of when you are gone. You can name individuals, organizations, or charities to receive your assets or property as well as name a trustee of your estate to handle all matters.
In the event you become incapacitated or terminally ill, a Living Will can be a vital to describe your preferences on life saving treatment, or lack thereof.
POWERS OF ATTORNEY
