You’ve spent your whole life taking care of yourself and your loved ones and providing for your family. It’s an ongoing commitment, and one that requires hard work as well as planning and forethought. That is what estate planning is all about – providing you and your family with financial security, clarity, and peace of mind.
At The Watts Law Office we help our clients develop and implement comprehensive estate planning strategies personally tailored to their unique situation, needs, and goals.
We understand that no one really wants to think about disability or death and that they are not the easiest subjects to discuss with your family. However, with proper guidance, you can protect your finances and spare your loved ones the frustration of having to make costly and difficult decisions after you become ill, mentally incapacitated, physically disabled, or pass away.
No matter how large or small your estate is, no matter whether it is relatively simple or extremely complex, we will work with you to put together an estate plan that will provide you and your family with the comfort that comes from knowing you have taken care of your family’s financial security, addressed difficult decisions regarding your care and personal affairs in the event of incapacity, and provided for your retirement, health care and long-term care needs.
We provide a full range of estate planning services, including:
- Will drafting and execution
- Trust drafting and administration, including special needs, insurance, and other specialized trusts
- Advance healthcare planning and directives
- Power of attorney
- Estate administration
- Probate counsel and representation
In addition to the above, we provide the following services that are a part of estate planning but covered in more detail in other pages of this website:
