Without a will, when you pass on, your property will be left as the law directs, not necessarily to the people to whom you would like to leave it. You can tell us exactly who you want to receive your property and we can quickly prepare your will. We prepare living wills, which provide a way to decide in advance how you would like your decisions to be made concerning your medical treatment when you are later unable to make those decisions yourself. We also prepare powers of attorney. There is no charge for your first visit, and our firm has 43 years of experience in handling these types of cases, including the probate of estates.
This legal area includes:
- Wills: Including simple wills, complex wills, and guardianship
- Powers of Attorney and Living Wills: a power of attorney allows you to name a trusted person to handle your financial affairs if you are unable to do so. A living will allows you to tell family members and medical professionals whether you want any extraordinary care if you are in an end-of-life condition with no hope of recovery.
- Medical powers of attorney: a medical power of attorney allows you to name a trusted person to handle your medical care if you are incapacitated and cannot communicate for yourself.
- Guardian: a person or entity appointed by the court to make decisions about the care of another, known as a ward. The decisions concern such things as medical treatment and living arrangements.
- Conservator: a person or entity appointed by the court to make financial decisions on behalf of the person being cared for, called the protected person.
