Types of Wills and Trusts
We handle a range of issues related to wills and trusts, including:
- Writing wills - A will lets you express how you would like your assets to be distributed when you die, name a guardian for your minor children and set forth funeral wishes. While it's possible for an individual to complete a simple will template from the Internet, these do not take into account your unique situation; it's a much better idea to meet with a qualified lawyer who can individualize this document for you.
- Establish living wills - In a living will, you name what type of medical care you want to receive, if any, in the event you become unable to communicate that information for yourself.
- Establish living trusts - By placing your assets in a living trust, your beneficiaries will receive your belongings and property directly when you die. This allows you to avoid the probate process, minimize estate taxes and prevent court involvement.
- Trust administration - We represent beneficiaries, trustees and fiduciaries, or executors, in trust administration matters.
In addition, we represent individuals interested in contesting wills.

To better serve you, we will take the time to talk to you and learn about what's important to you. We will encourage you to consider various aspects of your estate plan, many of which you may not have given much thought.
