Wills & Estate Planning

Estate law can be a sensitive and very personal matter, which is why we offer personalized services to ensure that your wishes are reflected in your estate planning and administration.


Your will determines how your assets will be distributed in the event of your death. As part of our estate planning services, we draft documents to ensure your assets pass efficiently to your chosen beneficiaries.

Power of Attorney for Property

A power of attorney for property authorizes another individual to act on your behalf in financial matters. This power can be given within a specific scope, or time frame, or as an unrestricted power to act on your behalf with regard to your property and financial assets.

Power of Attorney for Personal Care

A power of attorney for personal care authorizes another individual to make important healthcare decisions on your behalf. This power is triggered when you are unable to care for yourself or to make important decisions regarding your health. It gives your chosen attorney the power to step in and make those decisions for you.

Estate Administration

Drafting a will is only the first step in distributing your estate. We can act as your estate trustee or executor, seeing that your will is followed through according to your wishes. This may include gathering any assets, arranging for the sale of your property, handling taxes, and distributing the assets. We can make the probate application, where your will is validated by the courts.
