Estate Planning

Estate planning involves much more than a last will and testament and other legal documents. It is a serious matter of preserving your family’s legacy and values.

Lifetime planning involves putting measures in place in the event you are unable to make decisions for yourself.

Living wills leave specific instructions to avoid family altercations when dire medical conditions lead to difficult, emotional decisions.

Financial and healthcare durable powers of attorney give a trusted loved one authority to act on your behalf should you become incapacitated due to mental illness or sudden accident. When a power of attorney is in place, they have immediate authority to instruct doctors or financial institutions without needing to go to court.

The lawyers at Carter Reymann Law understand that every person and every situation is unique.
