Estate planning is a critical part of my philosophy that it's best to take action to prevent legal troubles. You may need to establish a revocable living trust, living will and powers of attorney to prevent unforeseen legal problems.

Whether you have a large or small estate, proper planning will enable you, among other things, to:
Pass your property to the people you choose with a
minimum of legal hassles
Ensure that your health care wishes are honored
Help your heirs avoid the high costs and time delays
of probate
Avoid a court-appointed conservator if you become incapacitated
Appoint guardians for minor children Minimize taxes on your estate
Set up a trust for children or elderly parents Make the grieving process easier for your loved ones
