Most people don’t have a will or trust plan to solve the legal problems involved with lifetime mental incapacity and transferring assets at death. We help you create the best plan to protect your family, assets, money, and dignity without court actions. You can make life easier for those you love by reducing their financial burdens and emotional stress.
Not having the right will or trust plan in place will leave your family with an emotional and financial mess. A loving person who cares about his or her family will choose to plan before something bad happens, such as a car accident, fall, stroke, illness, mental incapacity or death. We can help you obtain the best solutions for both lifetime mental incapacity planning and asset transfer planning before tragedy strikes.

Great Families Plan
Be Prepared: Whether you’re a working single adult, young parents with children, preparing for retirement, or retired, you need to be prepared for whatever life may bring with a comprehensive Will or Trust plan.
Without a spouse or dependents, you may think you’re not ready for a will or trust. But who will make your healthcare and financial decisions if you’re unable?
Who will your children live with on either a temporary or permanent basis? Take the guesswork out of the equation and plan for the unknown now.
Preparation later in life is key. From wills to trusts, ensure that you and your family are prepared for the future.

My personal goal is to give clients peace of mind in the event of death or mental disability. Their families can be well taken care of as a result of thoughtful and knowledgeable planning
YOU NEED A WILL OR TRUST PLAN EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT “WEALTHY”
What Is My “Estate”?: Every adult should have a Will or Trust plan. “Estate” is the legal term used to define your property and money—basically, everything that belongs to you. You don’t have to consider yourself wealthy to need estate planning. You can make good decisions after you have learned about the various options and choices you have for lifetime disability planning, protection planning for children and adults, asset transfer planning and IRA planning.
Planning for your future should start in the present.
Plan at Any Stage of Life: It doesn’t matter if you’re young and single, a married couple with young children, or preparing to settle gracefully into retirement, the time to start planning for the unexpected is now. Young adults can make sure someone can act on their behalf for financial and medical purposes. Couples with minor dependents can set up guardians for their children. Retirees can ensure their life insurance is intact, and their wills or trusts are up-to-date with their current wishes.
Do It Now! If you’re ready to start preparing for your future, I encourage you to reach out today by phone or email. Once I receive your message, my goal is to respond within 24 hours to maintain the highest level of professionalism, so expect to hear from me soon.
Intelligent Decisions: I frequently sit down with some really neat people and explain how estate planning can protect them and their families in the event of their mental disability or death. Some people do it; some people don’t; all adults should. It’s ALWAYS your choice. But you have to know what your choices are so you can make an informed decision.
