Areas of Practice:
- Will: an estate planning tool that allows you to clearly state your personal priorities, and wishes for your estate
- Living Will: (also known as an advance medical directive) allows you to dictate how you wish doctors to proceed with life support in your last stages of life.
- Power of Attorney: is a legal document that grants a specific person the authority to make medical, financial or legal decisions on your behalf.
- Living Trusts: A living trust allows you to place specific assets into trust, which you manage as a trustee. By creating a living trust you transfer specific property into the name of the trust and manage your assets as "trustee" instead of managing them in your own name. The grantor (or Creator of the trust) can revoke or change the Trust at any time during his or her life, unless the grantor states otherwise at the trust’s creation.
