Estate planning

You can't take it with you. If you could, the attorneys at Wiley Lavender would know how to arrange it. But you CAN decide what happens to your money and property after you pass on, and we can help you examine your options and implement your decisions.

Creating an estate plan is an important process at any stage in life and, depending on your specific needs, it may necessitate a variety of documents, among them a last will and testament, a living will/healthcare proxy, various trusts, assignment of power of attorney, a qualified personal residence trust, a family limited partnership, a charitable foundation, or a buy-sell agreement. This planning can be even more crucial if you have a child with special needs. The following is a list of our estate planning services:
