As you make plans for how you want matters to be handled both during your life and after your death, we can assist with:

  • Wills - In a last will and testament, you can set down instructions for how your property should be distributed to your heirs, who you would like to serve as the guardian of your minor children, and your desires for the disposition of your remains. You will also name an executor who will ensure that the terms of the will are carried out correctly during the probate process. Having a properly executed will in place will ensure that your family members can avoid confusion or uncertainty about your wishes following your death.
  • Powers of Attorney - With these types of legal agreements, you can name a person who will act as an agent and make decisions for you when you are incapacitated. Powers of attorney can grant your agent authority over medical decisions or give them control over your property and finances. Depending on your needs, you can give your agent full authority to make any decisions necessary regarding your medical care or property, or you can limit them to making decisions in specific areas while also providing instructions about how you want certain issues to be handled. This will ensure that your wishes will be carried out correctly if you become unable to make decisions on your own.
  • Living Wills/Medical Directives - You may wish to address issues related to the medical care you receive as you near the end of your life. By creating a living will, you can decide what types of treatments you do or do not want to receive if you have a terminal condition. Other medical directives, such as a do not resuscitate order, can provide additional protection to make sure your wishes about medical treatment will be followed correctly.
