Your Overall Financial Plan

Estate planning is for everyone, regardless of age or wealth. You should not wait until retirement age to set a plan in place, especially if you're married a parent, or if you own real estate property, or if you have any measurable assets, which you probably do. An estate comprises everything you own, from your home to your automobiles, land, personal possessions, life insurance, cash in bank accounts, investments and so much more.

Without an estate plan, you cannot control how your assets are distributed, nor can you fully control what should happen to you or your finances if you become incapacitated. Our Providence County estate planning attorney can help you plan for incapacitation or death by utilizing various tools such as advance directives for health care, living wills, creating a will, trusts, a power of attorney and more. We can also help you name a guardian for minor children.

In addition to estate planning, we handle all matters pertaining to elder law issues. The areas covered under elder law include Medicaid planningconservatorshipfiduciary services, estate planning, long-term care planning, long-term insurance, and more.
