It’s about protecting what you have for you during your life and for those you love after you’re gone. It ensures what you have gets to the people you love, the way you want, when you want.

Estate planning allows you to provide for your family by creating a will, establishing a power of attorney or living will, making funeral arrangements in advance, and more.

Would you trust a novice to handle your estate planning matters?

Proper estate planning is complex and handled best by an experienced professional whether your only assets are a home, bank accounts and a retirement account, or if your assets are valued in the millions and/or include business assets.

If you’re ready to begin the estate planning process, you need the help of an attorney with the knowledge to protect the interests of you and your loved ones.

At the family law offices of Holstrom, Sissung, Marks & Anderson, we provide comprehensive estate planning services designed to help individuals and families achieve their long-term goals. Every estate is different, and our advice is tailored to suit your particular needs.

Our aim in estate planning is to develop mechanisms for preserving assets for the next generation or for charitable purposes. To accomplish this goal, our basic estate plan includes:

  • Will – provides for the transfer of your property upon your death
  • Financial Durable Power of Attorney – a document to appoint an agent to make financial decisions for you if you are unable to do so because of illness or an accident
  • Health Care Power of Attorney – a document to appoint an agent to make health care decisions for you if you are unable to do so.
  • Health Care Directive or Living Will – the opportunity to direct what kind of health care you wish to receive if you become terminally ill or in a permanent coma.
