A well-prepared estate plan will cover how your estate will be distributed when you pass away, as well as how your personal and financial affairs will be managed in the event you become incapacitated. Our attorneys carefully craft comprehensive estate plans, including revocable living trusts, wills and other estate planning documents. Each document is specifically tailored to the needs and goals of our clients. We are particularly sensitive to tax considerations in estate planning, and counsel our clients regarding transfer tax implications, including estate, gift and generation-skipping transfer taxes.
Issues of mental or physical incapacity can make a person legally incompetent to manage his or her own affairs. Advance health care directives and durable powers of attorney can be drafted in advance to allow others to fulfill your wishes with regard to medical procedures, end-of-life decisions and financial matters, should you become unable to express those wishes and carry them out yourself.
