Wills and Powers of Attorney

Creating a Will and Powers of Attorney ensures that your loved ones are protected. Without a valid will, your assets will pass to beneficiaries according to statutory guidelines, which may not reflect your wishes. Having a Will is essential, regardless of the size of your estate.

Having Powers of Attorney for Personal Care and Property ensures that you and your finances are taken care of in the event that you become incapacitated. These documents allow you to choose in advance how, when, and who will make medical and financial decisions on your behalf, if you are no longer able to make decisions independently.

We can assist you by drafting simple or complex Wills, Trusts and Guardianships, revising or re-drafting your Will, and drafting Powers of Attorney for Personal Care and Powers of Attorney for Property.

Estate Administration

Estate Administration can be complex and stressful. Even the simplest estate can prove difficult and time consuming to administer.

We can provide guidance and help executors protect themselves from potential disputes, as they may be personally liable if mistakes are made. We can effectively assist you with:

  • Reviewing and interpreting the will;
  • Locating and valuating assets;
  • Identifying beneficiaries;
  • Notifying creditors;
  • Applying for a Certificate of Appointment of an Estate Trustee (formerly known as “probate”);
  • Dealing with bank accounts, insurance policies, and investments;
  • Distribution of estate assets;
  • Preparing an estate accounting.
