The wills, trusts and estate planning practice of GILBERT & FUREY helps clients protect their assets, minimize estate taxes and plan for the transfer of property from one generation to the next. We also assist clients with probate and the administration of estates. Our lawyers can advise you on a range of estate planning and probate needs, including:
- Simple and complex wills to direct the distribution of your property to heirs and beneficiaries after death
- Trusts to minimize estate taxes in larger estates
- Living wills to communicate to health care providers and family members what steps you want taken to prolong your life if you are in a terminal or end-of-life condition without hope of recovery
- Health care powers of attorney to designate a trusted family member or friend to make medical decisions for you if you are unable to do so yourself
- Financial powers of attorney to designate a trusted person to make financial decisions for you if you are unable to do so yourself
- Guardianship appointments to designate a trusted person to exercise guardianship powers in advance of need, for your person or your estate
- Probate of wills and administration of estates involving no will
Our attorneys provide business succession counsel tailored to the needs of small-business owners who may wish to minimize disruption in ongoing business operations in the event of death or incapacity.
