Woodbury, MN Estate Planning Lawyer

One of the two most widely held misconceptions about estate planning is that you need to have a lot of money or property or other valuables or complicated family dynamics in order to benefit much from it. This is false.

The other is that “there will always be time to do it later.” The truth is that you just never know.

As an attorney, I can help you identify specific needs, evaluate various options, and create the legal documents needed to achieve whatever goals you have in mind. My practice involves a wide range of essential estate-related services, including:

  • Incapacity planning (durable powers of attorney, health care directives and HIPAA waivers)
  • Drafting wills and revisions to existing wills
  • Revocable trusts
  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Guardianship provisions for minor children
  • Medical assistance planning
  • Probate and asset protection planning

Solutions for Every Stage in Life

Whether you’re young and just starting out or you’re already enjoying retirement, there are cost-effective estate planning options that can benefit you and your loved ones. Also, as time passes and circumstances change, existing estate plans can easily be updated or revised to meet new needs or accomplish new goals.

Early on, for example, a basic will (with or without a trust provision) combined with a power of attorney, health care directive and HIPAA waiver can meet the essential needs of almost any young person or couple. In mid-life, by contrast, more emphasis may need to be placed on protecting assets and planning for retirement.
