Everybody benefits from an estate plan. 

Do you think estate planning is just for the wealthy? Think again. If you own a home, have a family, are in a second marriage, own a business, have property, are turning 18, or just want to reduce taxes and make retirement easier, then an estate plan is for you.

Estate planning helps ensure that your estate is transferred to your beneficiaries according to your wishes. It can help you provide not only for family members, but if you so choose, it can support a favorite cause or charity. Moreover, a well-drafted estate plan eases the burden on those you care about should you become incapacitated. At the same time, through gifting, charitable giving, and trust instruments, you can reduce the taxes on your estate.

Elements of an estate plan include

Last Will and Testament

Medical Directive (a.k.a. Living Will)
