Estate Planning

It is never too early or too late to plan for your family's future. A proper estate plan will allow your estate to be distributed to your elected beneficiaries with the least possible hassle, time, and costs.

A typical estate plan includes a Will, Living Will, Property Power of Attorney, and Healthcare Power of Attorney.

  • A Will allows you to dictate the beneficiaries of your estate to your specifications. You will name an executor of the Will who will be in charge of administering your estate after you pass. A Will also allows you to name a guardian of your minor children.
  • A Living Will allows for termination of extensive life prolonging procedures when there is little or no chance of recovery.
  • A Property Power of Attorney names the person that you want to be in charge of your financial affairs, should you become mentally incapacitated or otherwise unable to make or communicate decisions.
  • A Healthcare Power of Attorney names the person that you want in charge of making your medical decisions, should you become mentally incapacitated or otherwise unable to make or communicate decisions. These decisions include choice of doctor, hospital, and type of treatment.

Shie Law also specializes in the creation of Trusts, which are Will substitutes that allow for avoidance of probate (court involved proceedings) and designation of certain terms and provisions for asset administration after a client's passing.
