Estate PlanningComprehensive estate planning covers nearly every aspect of life. It begins with protecting yourself and your personal dignity, and extends to protecting your loved ones and your hard-earned assets. Planning an estate is “All About You.” For once you can actually say out loud, “It’s all about me and what I want!” Our goal is to have you be in the driver’s seat during and after your lifetime. When you are in the driver’s seat of your car you decide which roads to travel and which ones to avoid, how fast you go, where to stop, who travels with you, and your ultimate destinations. Just like each person’s vehicle and destinations are unique, so are their estate plans. Your estate plan functions as your driving directions which encompasses the coordination of your desires, your family, your assets, the law and taxes. CAUTION: All of this changes if you fail to take the time to create your own estate plan. By your own default, you relinquish the driver’s seat and allow the Probate Court to sit in your place and dictate its own directions. LESSON: Developing your customized estate plan is essential for the protection of you and your family members and will result in your “Peace of Mind.”

Durable Power of AttorneyThere is a very significant difference between a Power of Attorney and a Durable Power of Attorney. A “Durable” Power of Attorney allows an agent to act for the principal after the principal becomes incapacitated, which is often times exactly when the principal needs the agent to act.
