A plan for a single person may include a last will and testament, durable power of attorney, medical power of attorney and living will. For couples, each person receives their own set of documents. For people with young children, a will typically contains what's called a testamentary trust in case you pass before your children are adults.

A trust plan for a single person may include the same documents contained in our will plan plus a trust, trust certificate and deed. Our trust plans may include transferring one real property into the trust.

We advise and represent executors, trustees, guardians and conservators, heirs and beneficiaries. Our attorneys' diverse backgrounds and wide-ranging legal knowledge are important assets for our clients, who often refer others with estate law concerns to our firm.
