Wills, Trusts And Estates

Estate planning involves creating one or more of the following documents depending on your need, financial status and status of your potential beneficiaries. Creating these documents will save time and money and alleviate unnecessary stress in challenging times.

  • Last Will and Testament
  • Trusts
  • Health Care Proxies
  • Durable Powers of Attorney
  • Living Wills Real Estate

Taking the time to complete these documents will greatly reduce confusion and legal costs upon death, or if one has limited ability to make their own decisions. Jacoby & Meyers, LLP, also represents legal representatives (executors) of estates to facilitate estate administration.
