Estate Planning

Estate planning is a process where you consider the alternatives, think through, and set up legally effective arrangements that would meet your specific wishes if something happens to you or those you care about. Proper estate planning is more than just a simple Will. Estate planning typically minimizes potential taxes and fees and sets up contingency planning to make sure your wishes regarding health care treatment are followed.

On the financial side, a good estate plan outlines what would happen with your home, your investments, your business, your life insurance, your employee benefits (such as a 401K plan), and other property in the event you became disabled or if you die. On the personal side, a good estate plan includes directions to carry out your wishes regarding health care matters. If you are ever unable to give the instructions yourself, someone you select would do that for you and know when you would want them to authorize heroic measures and when you would prefer they take a problematic action such as ceasing life support.​
