We Help You Prioritize and Optimize Your Financial and Legal Affairs

Whether your estate is large or modest, and whatever your unique personal circumstances, we will guide you through the steps required to:

  • Decide exactly what should be in your last will and testament

  • Establish a durable power of attorney, advance health care directive or “living will,” and any other documents essential for documenting your wishes in the event of death or incapacity
  • Address specific matters such as how best to provide for a disabled family member through a special needs trust, how to achieve special objectives involving charitable gifts and much more
  • Plan for and handle the Retirement Transition, Sale, and/or estate planning of sole proprietor, small and medium sized businesses.
  • We leverage our considerable knowledge in real estate, estate and business law, and coordinate with our team of professionals to make sure you and your family and business have a sound, tax-optimized, comprehensive financial plan that is appropriately and efficiently linked to your Estate Documents.
