Practice areas
  1. Estate planning
    50%
    "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.

  2. Elder law
    20%
    Elder law attorneys and elder care lawyers deal with issues related to elderly and disabled people. They write wills, plan strategies for obtaining Medicaid should you need nursing home care, and assist with guardianships for adults. Their services are useful for health and long-term care planning, as well as end-of-life planning decisions. Elder law attorneys know what public and private resources may be available for seniors but also younger clients who want to plan for the future.

  3. Power of attorney
    10%
    Powers of attorney for both medical and financial decisions are another important component of a comprehensive estate plan.

  4. Probate
    10%
    Probate is the process to transfer your assets to your beneficiaries after you pass away. Whether you want to mitigate the cost and time of probate with a living trust or need guidance in probating a loved one's estate, elder law attorneys are here to help.

  5. Wills and living wills
    10%
    This is part of our comprehensive Estate Plan package. Most people are familiar with the need for a last will and testament for when you pass away and a living will to express your medical care wishes; however, that is just one component of an estate plan. Our office incorporates these documents into individualized plans that meet your needs.

Happy with Services
I came to Doreen after my husband passed away. She was able to help me settle his estate and get my affairs in order for when I pass away. She invited all of my children to come to the meetings with me, which we found very helpful. Doreen was a great help to me and I would recommend her to others.

Found Peace of Mind
My husband and I went to one of Doreen's community workshops in our community and felt comfortable sharing our story and planning goals with her. She was very sincere, you can tell she genuinely enjoys her job. Doreen opened our eyes to options we didn't know we had when it came to planning for our future needs. We are so happy with our estate plan and have found peace of mind in knowing we are prepared for whatever comes our way in the future. Thank you Doreen!
