Personal Legal Planning Is For Everyone

Probate EstateConsulting with a knowledgeable, experienced attorney regarding the legal planning needed to address the issues you will face in the event of your incapacity or death is a gift you give to your family. Contrary to popular belief, estate planning is not just financial planning for elderly people with significant assets. A comprehensive estate plan is most important for a young family to ensure the physical and financial well-being of children in the event of the incapacity or death of the parents. As you age, changes are needed to your planning based upon changes in your family situation, your needs and your assets.

Client-Centered Planning To Meet Your Needs

While it may seem simple to use on-line document production tools, these services do not address the nuances of your specific situation. Our experienced estate planning attorneys will meet with you to explore your concerns and needs and discuss the options for planning so that you can make informed decisions. We will work as a team with your financial and other advisers so that you are ensured of a consistent, well-considered plan for your future.

A Will Is Only One Piece Of The Puzzle

Most people call our office asking us to prepare a will. A will is only one of the documents you may need to complete your personal legal planning. Many clients also need a health care power of attorney, living will or durable financial power of attorney. Some may have more complex needs requiring various types of trusts, transfers of assets, purchases of insurance and planned giving. Our estate planning attorneys have more than 25 years of experience and remain current on the changes of the law in this area. Our lead estate planning attorney, Rose Kauffman, is an active member of the Centre Region Estate Planning Council, and works closely with other professionals in the financial and elder services communities in serving her clients.
