Last Will and Testament

A Last Will and Testament is a foundational document in estate planning. It specifies how you want your assets distributed after your death and allows you to appoint an executor to carry out your wishes. Your will is also the document in which you designate the guardian for your minor children and arrange for care of any other dependents when you pass away.

Revocable Living Trusts

Revocable Living Trusts offer flexibility (since they can be changed) and privacy (since, unlike wills, they are not public documents). When you transfer your assets to a trust, you can continue  to manage them during your lifetime, but they are legally removed from your ownership. This  enables a smooth asset distribution after your passing and avoids the need for probate.

Irrevocable Trusts

Irrevocable Trusts are also commonly used in estate planning, but, once established, they cannot be altered or revoked. Irrevocable trusts offer tax benefits, asset protection, and control over how assets are distributed to beneficiaries. Some serve specific purposes, e.g. Special Needs Trusts and Spendthrift Trusts.

Durable Power of Attorney

With a Durable Power of Attorney you can authorize someone to make legal and financial decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. This document ensures that a person you trust will manage your affairs, sign contracts, handle investments, do banking, and even file a lawsuit on your behalf, if you’re unable to do so yourself.

Health Care Proxy

A Health Care Proxy, names the person you want to make medical decisions on your behalf if you’re unable to communicate your wishes. This document ensures that your healthcare preferences will be respected if you are incapacitated.

Advance Medical Directive

An Advance Medical Directive outlines your preferences for medical care if you are at the end-of-your life or unable to communicate (e.g. in a coma). This document states your wishes in regard to receiving life-sustaining treatment (e.g. intubation, feeding tube) if you will not recover. It also addresses organ and tissue donation.


Guardianship can be established through the court to protect an adult or minor who is incapable of self-care due to a serious injury or illness. A legal guardian has the authority to make a wide range of lifestyle as well as financial decisions for the ward’s well-being.

Marital Property Agreements

Marital Property Agreements, such as prenuptial or postnuptial agreements, establish how a couple’s assets and debts will be divided in the event of divorce or death. These agreements provide clarity and protect both spouses’ interests.
