Wills & Trusts

Anyone, hypothetically, can draft a will or administer the terms of an estate after the death of the drafter. In our experience, poorly written estate plans lead to disputes and animosity among surviving family members and beneficiaries.

The Goals of Estate Planning

Estate planning by an experienced wills and trusts attorney allows you to accomplish a number of important goals:

  • A properly drafted will or trust can ensure that the appropriate people inherit your assets, as and when you intend
  • A living will (or health care directive) can ensure your loved ones know your wishes in cases of medical emergency or at the end of life, while a health care proxy can allow someone to make health care decisions when you are unable to
  • A durable power of attorney can allow someone to handle your finances in the event you become unable to
  • Your estate plan can support your goals in giving to charity as well as gifting to children and grandchildren through gift tax planning 

We are well aware of the tax consequences and family problems that a client and his or her heirs can face when estate planning is not done properly. Our experience in estate planning and estate litigation allows us to avoid pitfalls that can lead to litigation.

  • "She will get the job done. We had to get a lawyer 90 miles away to get top-notch legal counsel."
  • "I absolutely loved Maria. She helped me a lot and fought hard against the other attorneys. She works hard for her clients and is extremely dedicated. I met with with other attorneys prior to hiring Maria. They were not as aggressive as she was. I would highly suggest Maria."
