Estate Planning consists of putting your personal and financial affairs in order in contemplation of your death. Anna can prepare a plan that will be right for you and will provide for your loved ones as you direct. These services include all types of Wills and various types of Trusts, including simple Wills, Living Wills, Power of Attorney, Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts, and Living Trusts.
