The Essential Estate Planning Package

To begin the estate planning process please click here to download your Estate Planning Questionaire. Please fill out the required information and return the document to our office via email.

Last Will and Testament

Your final direction as to how your estate should be distributed upon your death. Avoid confusion and arguments and put it down in writing so there will be no misunderstanding.

Durable Power of Attorney

An all inclusive power of attorney which will allow your designated representative to act on your behalf on all matters should you become incapacitated or unable to handle your own affairs.

Medical Directive

Instructions to your doctor regarding your medical treatment and condition should you become incapacitated and unable to convey your instructions directly.

Without an advance directive, if an adult loses the capacity to make or communicate medical decisions, often the only way they can be made is for someone to be appointed by a court as the guardian for the person. Once that occurs, the court will continue to be involved in all health care decisions, and often it is not possible to stop life support without holding a public trial.
