Estate planning is one of the most important steps a person takes to ensure that their final property and health care wishes are honored, and that loved ones are provided for in their absence. We can assist you in determining the best way to transfer your wealth to ensure the people you have chosen receive your assets in the manner you desire. This will also avoid any disputes over your assets after your death. A good estate plan will keep your family out of probate court and save your loved ones time and money.
An initial consultation to assess your personal situation and review your options with you is free. Our fee for preparing your estate planning documents is $200 per hour. The amount of time spent varies depending on the complexity of each clients needs, however for basic estate plans for a married couple, which would typically involve drafting a Revocable Trust, Wills, Health Care and Property Powers of Attorney and Living Wills, the amount of time spent would typically between 4-5 hours. The time spent drafting a single person’s estate plan would typically be less. Regardless, we can give you an estimated fee after the initial consultation and before any work commences.
