Wills, Powers of Attorney & Estates
I believe that every person should have a Will (setting out one's wishes in the event of death) and that every person should have Powers of Attorney (for Health Care and for Property) so that decision makers have been decided in the event of expected or unexpected problems. If the proposed distribution of your Assets on death is complex or if you have a special needs family member or if you require a detailed trust, I will assist in referring you to another lawyer or law firm.
I provide services in Estate matters, Including acting for you in completing and filing the Application for Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee, with a Will (or without a Will) formerly and commonly referred to as "probate".
