Estate planning is for everyone, regardless of age or wealth. You should not wait until retirement age to set a plan in place, and this is especially the case 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 that you own from your home, to your automobiles, to land, personal possessions, life insurance, and cash in bank accounts, investments and so much more.

Without an estate plan, you have no way of controlling 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 and 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. Such areas covered under elder law include: Medicaid planningconservatorshipfiduciary services, estate planning, long-term care planning, long-term insurance and more.
