Estate Planning

“Death is not the end. There remains the litigation over the estate” – Ambrose Bierce

It is a common misperception that the words “estate planning” only apply to those of significant wealth.  What many people do not realize is that simply creating a Will is estate planning.  Other documents such as a Financial Power of Attorney and Healthcare Directive are relavent to almost any client or prospective client that walks through our doors.
