Estate Planning


Estate planning is more than simply having a will.  What happens if you suffer from an illness or disability that leaves you unable to make daily decisions regarding your medical care and/or your financial situation?  How much of my estate is subject to probate taxes?  How can I provide for my child in the event I die before they reach adulthood?

The firm’s attorneys are available to guide you through the process of creating an estate plan, specific to your plans and wishes.  In a typical initial interview, Mr. Warren and an associate will review and advise you regarding the key decisions involved in making a will, trust, power of attorney, advanced medical directive, and/or related documents, describe the associated costs for preparing same, and outline the applicable current tax and liability issues.
