Estate planning is a vital tool that individuals and families often fail to use to implement prior to a crisis occurring.

We can draft Wills, Trusts (including Special Needs Trusts), Health Care Directives, Living Wills, Powers of Attorney as well as amendments to previously drafted estate planning documents.
The probate process involves settling the estate of a person after he or she dies.
