Focusing on Your Individual Needs

For many people, an estate allows them to feel at ease the care and support of their loved ones. In some cases, a person’s estate plan may spell out exactly how matters should be handed before their own death if they are unable to take care of themselves or communicate tier wishes. Avoiding probate may be a important goal. Whatever the reason for an estate plan, our estate planning service includes the preparation of all of the documents that are necessary for an integrated and functioning estate plan, including:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Durable power of attorney for health care and/or property management
  • Advance health care directive (living wills)

We will take the time to explain how each type of legal document can help you. Depending on your estate planning goals, we will draft one or more of these documents for you. When the Westlake Law group prepares an estate plan and set up a living trust, we take advantage of the opportunity to work in partnership with your accountant, financial planner, and insurance agent, all of whom may be considered part of your estate-planning team.
