Artz, Dewhirst & Wheeler, LLP, is an experienced provider of estate planning services for individuals and families. We will listen to you as you describe your needs and tailor your estate planning solution to your specifications. There are many legal options to make estate arrangements for yourself and your heirs.
Wills And Trusts
A will is the cornerstone of any estate plan: It dictates how your assets get dispersed after your death. We are experienced at giving solid legal guidance for will execution.
We can set up the type of trust that best addresses your situation and goals, including structuring it to provide your heirs any tax advantages available. Revocable and irrevocable trusts can also benefit from our oversight during administration.
Powers Of Attorney
Legally designating powers of attorney can help you prepare for future possibilities with a strong plan in place. A durable power of attorney allows you to legally appoint someone to handle your personal affairs if you are no longer able to do so.
A health care power of attorney allows you to choose a person you would like to direct your medical treatments if you were unable to yourself.
Once established, a living will is a legally binding statement directing which medical treatments you wish to receive and those you want to avoid. Our firm can make sure that both of these documents are written to provide you with a comprehensive strategy for you and your estate.
Probate And Estate Administration
Being an administrator of an estate can be a complicated proposition. Artz, Dewhirst & Wheeler, LLP, provides family members of the deceased with knowledge of the probate process and can give estate administrators comprehensive legal counsel.
