While it may be decades before you need them, basic estate planning documents help you ensure that your financial wishes and health care instructions will be respected in the event of death or incapacity. Estate planning is a way to make sure the people you love are taken care of no matter what happens — and a way to minimize their burden when you are gone.

At Amy M. Levine & Associates, we offer a range of estate planning services to help our clients meet their basic estate planning goals. We offer a simple estate planning package that provides clients with the documents they need to make their wishes known:

  • Wills — Your last will and testament allows to make decisions about what will happen to your assets in the event of your death. You may also name an executor of your estate and indicate who you would like to care for your children.
  • Trusts — Larger estates may benefit from a variety of trusts used to set aside money for a dependent with special needs, a charity or other purpose.
  • Living wills (health care directives) — Many people have strong feelings about the way they want to be taken care of at the end of their lives, but too few take the time to make their feelings known. A living will can help you make critical decisions about health care.
  • Powers of attorney — A power of attorney allows you to appoint another person to take care of your finances in the event of your incapacity.

In addition to simple wills and trusts, our lawyers also bring extensive experience to more complex estates. If you have significant assets, debts or property, additional tools may help you set up a trust for loved ones, make charitable donations and minimize the tax implications for your loved ones.
