Wills play a significant role in managing your personal and business assets and call for meticulous planning and thought. Given the complexities of blended families, children with disabilities, and life changes, our team offers counsel and help in crafting your Will, defining the Executor of your Estate and the recipients of your assets (Beneficiaries).

Drafting a Will is crucial in order to confirm that all your loved ones are addressed, and all your assets are dispersed in line with your intentions after your passing.

The process of drafting a Will can be overwhelming, but our team can assist you through each phase to diminish the risk of your Will being disputed. Typically, a Will may be challenged if a family member is omitted or not adequately accounted for. Other kinds of claims might be due to allegations of lack of capacity, undue influence, or breach of trust.

Enduring Power of Attorney (Financial)

It’s a legal paper by which you empower a dependable person (termed as “the attorney”) to make personal, financial, legal, and property judgments on your behalf, should you become mentally incapable of doing so.

An Enduring Power of Attorney is granted to a person whom you trust to make sound financial and personal decisions on your behalf.

Among the tasks an attorney can execute on your behalf are: bill payments, document signing, property transactions, and managing shares or bank accounts.

Medical Treatment Decision

Every person possesses the right to make decisions about their own medical treatment. However, if you become incapable of making decisions, either on a temporary or permanent basis, you can opt to assign a representative who can make medical decisions on your behalf. The act of designating someone for this responsibility can be quite strenuous, but our team is here to help and guide you in deciding who and when you should nominate a trusted person to take on your medical decisions.
