It’s not the kind of topic that fills people with thoughts of joy and happiness: Wills, Powers of Attorney and Estate Administration. But it’s something that all of us have to deal with. Our Estate Lawyers can assist you in this difficult process with compassion and dedication to you and your loved ones.
Having an up-to-date Will and Power of Attorney not only makes sure your wishes are known and respected when you can’t speak them for yourself, but it also gives comfort and certainty for your loved ones in what will be an already difficult time for them. A will can also allow you to name a guardian for your children, provide for their education, and ensure that your assets are disposed of according to your wishes. In addition, a proper plan can provide for your care should you become incapacitated and also help avoid costly and protracted litigation and the family strain that may result.
Any time your life circumstances change, be it a union or dissolution, or the arrival of children and grandchildren, or the fallout or estrangement, you should consider how that event might alter your final wishes and who holds your Power of Attorney.
If you are the executor, executrix, or trustee of an estate, and you need assistance, our firm can help you navigate successfully the multitude of things that need to be taken care of to fulfill your duties to the estate. If your administration becomes contentious, our litigation lawyers are prepared to defend you from any claims brought against you or the estate.
