An estate plan typically consists of a revocable family trust, wills, and durable powers of attorney for health care and financial management. Depending upon your specific need, additional elements may be needed such as business entities and/or insurance, charitable and other irrevocable trusts. We also handle probate matters, conservatorships, guardianships, and estate and trust administration.
