My practice is about increasing the QUALITY OF LIFE of my clients. I have a client centered focus, not an attorney centered focus. If I can help you, I will. If I can't I will be honest and up front and then get you to the right professional that can make a difference.
"Estate" is the legal term used to define your property and money—basically, everything that belongs to you. Estate planning attorneys tell you different strategies you can use to transfer your belongings after you die. By planning your estate, you can maximize its value by minimizing taxes and eliminating court costs and interference. Estate planning attorneys also help you control and protect your estate during your lifetime, by writing documents that allow you to transfer property and money to children, charities, or others in a way you desire.
