Preparing For And Managing Life's Passages

Estate planning is a way of preparing yourself and your loved ones for the future. It helps your loved ones to avoid a lot of needless confusion and conflict by making your intentions known and giving them legal effect.

It can also be a way of preserving assets and building a legacy that will provide for your loved ones and favorite charities for many years to come.

Proper estate planning takes knowledge, skill and attention to detail. Wills, trusts and other estate planning documents must stand up to legal scrutiny many years after they were written, and so the language must be very carefully drafted.

At the law office of Dianne Moorehead Hughes, Attorney at Law, we have been helping individuals and families with estate planning and probate for more than 20 years. We work with issues such as:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Revocable trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care directives
  • Probate/estate administration

Plans Tailored For You And Your Family

Everyone should have some kind of estate plan, but there is no one-size-fits-all estate plan. Even if you don't have a lot of assets, it is a great help to your loved ones when you make your wishes known. It's also a very good idea for you to have a power of attorney to give someone the legal authority to make important decisions for you should you become unable to do so yourself.

For those who need them, trusts can be powerful tools. Trusts come in many forms, and can be modified to meet many objectives, including preserving assets or caring for loved ones who have special needs. Our lawyer can help you understand your legal options and how they can help you reach your goals.
