Estate planning is for every husband, wife, mother, father, grandparent, business owner, professional, or anyone else who has someone, or something, they care about.
Finding and aﬀording quality care on short notice can be stressful and draining. We can help you determine the best options for care and how to qualify for Medicaid to help ﬁnance them.
Special Needs Estate Planning focuses on providing for the special needs of our loved ones with disabilities when we are no longer there to organize and advocate on their behalf.
Probate & Trust Administration are the processes through which estate assets are transferred after death. Assets to be transferred under terms of a will go through probate.
