Wills and Estates
Everyone should have a Will to protect their assets, their loved ones and ensure that their wishes are respected after they die. Just as important in the modern world is the Power of Attorney, which ensures a trusted person is in charge of your health and property while you are unwell and unable to make decisions and/or handle finances on your own. However, many people do not have a Will or any Powers of Attorney, partly because they are intimidated by the process and difficult questions it may bring about. Other people are convinced that drafting a Will is unaffordable.
At our office, we strive to make the process of will drafting an affordable, thoughtful and positive experience. We work through our clients’ wishes and concerns and help them understand their options to create an estate plan that ensures peace of mind both for the client and their family.
We have experience in drafting and reviewing Wills, Trusts, Family Contracts (marriage contracts, domestic partnership agreements, separation agreements) and Powers of Attorney. We can also assist with estate administration and litigation matters.
