Top quality estate plans provide comfort for your loved ones while affording you the assurance that your property will be passed on to those whom you have intended it be specifically passed on to. Most often, an exceptional estate plan will be made up of a revocable Trust, Will, Durable Power of Attorney, and Medical Directives including a HIPAA authorization.
Estate planning is the ultimate planning ahead process in life. It is ensuring that your desires are known and followed during any period of incapacity and of course after you pass. Estate planning encompasses taking the time to plan the way in which you want your affairs to be handled during all stages of life. Creating a life and death plan (an estate plan) to address your personal property, money, real property and other assets is a very important task to handle sooner, rather than later.
For young families, estate planning is one of the most important tasks. For parents with young children, their Will will nominate a guardian just in case the parents pass to soon. Good parents will worry about what will happen to their kids if they pass to soon, but GREAT parents will plan by having an estate plan in place.
Estate planning can seem a little bit like an unpleasant task, but it is truly the best gift you can give your loved ones and yourself. We often hear that once someone has completed the estate planning process they feel peace of mind and relief.
The tools we can use to help you accomplish your goals include:
- A variety of Trusts, such as a Revocable Living Trusts and Irrevocable Trusts

- Financial Powers of Attorney
- HIPAA Authorizations
