We Can Put The Plans Together Or Challenge Existing Plans
Estate plans need to be tailored to the individual. What makes sense for one person may not make sense for the next. At our firm, our attorney takes the time to get to know you. This way he has a proper understanding of your last wishes and goals.
Our firm can handle all of your estate planning needs, including those related to:
- Wills: A will is a document that states how you want your assets to be divided up after you pass away. Our firm can help put your will together.
- Trusts: A trust is an arrangement where a third party holds on to named assets on behalf of a beneficiary. There are many different types of trusts. We can make recommendations based on your and your family’s individual circumstances.
- Living wills: A living will, also known as a health care directive, lets your wishes be known in the event you are incapacitated and can no longer make these decisions on your own.
- Power of attorney: Setting up powers of attorney, both medical and financial, gives someone else the legal right to make decisions on your behalf.
Our firm also handles cases involving challenging existing estate plan documents. Lawyer James I. Myers has decades of litigation experience. This helps in not only avoiding common pitfalls when creating estate plans, but he also uses the extensive knowledge he has gained over the years to handle estate litigation.
