Wills & Estates
You may also wish to have in place a power of attorney, medical directive (living will) and a medical power of attorney. These are important documents to have in case you become unable to voice your wishes due to circumstances like a serious illness, accident, or the complications of old age. We can help you prepare these documents so that your preferences regarding your care and medical treatment are clear and binding.
If you are named as an executor in a Last Will and Testament or are the administrator of an estate, we can represent and assist you. These roles come with heavy responsibility. You may be tasked with resolving disputes between beneficiaries, seeking fair appraisal of the all the deceased’s property, and meeting specific deadlines in regards to real estate sales and court filings. Having experienced legal representation can help you avoid some common mistakes and legal issues related to estate settlement.
In the event that you are an estate beneficiary who is concerned about the actions of an executor, administrator, or other heirs, we can help review your options and represent you in court against the estate or other heirs.
