Once you understand the nature of the documents and are satisfied that they reflect your intent, an appointment is made for you to execute the documents in our offices.
The documents which are commonly executed by our clients include the following:
- Durable Powers of Attorney

Why do you need a will or trust?
- If you have children, you want to determine who will act as their guardian if you are unable to do so.
- If you have family heirlooms or possessions of sentimental value, you may want to direct who will get them.
- If you have a child with special needs, you want to insure that your assets are used to care for them properly.
- If you have substantial assets, you want to use the opportunities available under the tax code to reduce your estate tax obligations as much as possible. This will help provide that your hard earned savings will go to your family as you intend.
