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).

Creating a Will is very important to make sure that all your loved ones are taken care of and that all your assets are disbursed in accordance with your wishes upon 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)

This is a legal instrument whereby you assign a reliable individual (known as “the attorney”) to make personal, financial, legal, and property-related decisions for you, should you lose the mental capability to make such decisions.

An Enduring Power of Attorney is given to someone that you trust to make the right financial and personal decisions on your behalf.

Some of the duties that an attorney can make on your behalf are; paying your bills, signing documents, purchasing or selling property, managing shares or bank accounts.

Medical Treatment Decision

Everyone has the prerogative to decide about their own medical treatment. But, if you find yourself unable to make these decisions either for a short period or permanently, you can select a medical decision-maker on your behalf. The process of appointing a person for this can be daunting, yet our team is prepared to guide and support you on whom and when you should designate a trusted individual to make medical decisions for you.

Advanced Care Directive

This document is legally binding and authorizes you to make definite preparations for your future health, care, and end of life circumstances. It documents your decisions and aspirations regarding medical treatment and details what medical treatment you do and don’t want in emergencies.
