Estate Planning. Protect the ones you love.
It's not something we want to think about, but a properly crafted estate plan is the best way to help protect your wealth for the ones you love. The good news is it's not very expensive, and it doesn't take a lot of time. Nicole is here to help guide you through the process of protecting your wealth for the ones you love.
Have you written your own Will?
You may have already written a will by yourself or decided to use an online service. You might have also appointed an agent under a power of attorney. It’s easy to think everything will be fine and you’ve made the necessary arrangements. Sadly this is rarely the case if you have not received professional legal support. In fact, there are many situations where the power of attorney won’t be recognized and a self-written or online generated will may bring many problems of its own. We can check all your existing estate plan and ensure everything is in order so your loved ones can avoid probate.

Estate Planning Practice Areas
What is a Will? - A Will is a document that expresses where you would like all your assets, property/real estate, and wealth to go at your death.
Trusts are an alternative to a Will and a foundational way to distribute much of your “estate” (assets you own) upon your death. You can put assets into the trust and take assets out of the trust.
If you do not have a will or trust, there is the option to utilize the concept of joint tenancy or joint assets. It is a simple and expensive plan to executive buy may not cover all your needs. Find out if this is the right estate planning solution for you and your partner.
Protecting your minors should never be outlooked in case of the unfortunate event of both you and your spouse passing away at the same time. There are various trusts you can set up and ways to determine their future guardian.
Deciding who will be your designated beneficiaries is a crucial part of the estate planning process. If they do not align with the provisions in the estate plan it can cause issues.
Not all estate plans cover mental disability. Be prepared in the event of an accident or stroke that leaves you incapacitated.
We can support with any medical directives (aka living will) that you may wish to carry out and help you with the creation of such documents and instructions in the event of any injury or terminal illness that you may suffer.
Sometimes there is more than just money, property and assets to protect after your death. Learn how you can share your values and beliefs with legacy planning.
