Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning, and Elder Law
While it might be tempting to use a template for a will or trust you found online, it is important to be very careful when using templates. A template won’t always take into account the unique circumstances of your situation and templates can’t replace sound legal advice. An elder law attorney can review your situation and help you understand whether a will or trust is your best option. Our elder lawyers can help you write your will, make sure it is properly validated and witnessed, and assist your family with the probate process when the time comes. Our elder lawyers can also review your will if you have one already written, but want to make sure it is up-to-date. It is never too early to begin planning to protect your family and your legacy.

Should you become incapacitated or too ill to make financial or medical decisions on your own behalf, do you know who you want to be in charge of your medical decisions and financial matters? Do you know who would be in charge should you become too ill to make decisions yourself? Without a durable power of attorney or living will, doctors or family members may make decisions that you would not want made.

These legal instruments can also specify who you would want to put in charge of your financial matters or estate should you become too ill to make financial or legal decisions. This can ensure that your financial matters are handled responsibly should you become too sick to make decisions or handle them yourself. The elder lawyers at Miller Trial Law can help you plan for end-of-life care, end of life contingencies, and help you plan for the future so that your wishes are honored and your family is cared for.
