Wills, Trusts and Estates

Wills, trusts and estates law is sometimes also called estate planning. All adults need some form of estate planning; it is not just for the aged or the wealthy. An estate plan is one or more legal documents that helps ensure a person takes care of themselves and their families throughout their lifetime and upon their passing. Plans often include a will, one or more trusts, a durable general power of attorney, and an advance medical directive.

The attorneys at McDermottWard counsel clients regarding their estate plan and draft the related documents. This includes discussion of important issues such as how to decide who should be named to manage their financial affairs and medical affairs and how to leave assets to a beneficiary with mental health or other special concerns. We also provide planning to clients who have estate, gift or generation skipping transfer tax concerns or whose assets include a business entity.
