Living Trusts, Wills, Powers of Attorney

What is an estate plan? Do I need one? These are the two most frequent questions I hear, and they are great questions. The first question requires that we meet and have a discussion regarding wills, trusts, powers of attorney and any other documents that may be relevant to you. I thoroughly explain the benefits of each, and what may be best for you, whether you are single, married, in a civil union or committed relationship, and whether you have children or not, and perhaps thinking of retirement planning, no matter your age, I will recommend estate plan options tailored just for your needs.

“Tony has provided our family with real estate and estate planning for over 20 years. He has been able to support both business and personal planning with the utmost respect and care and always putting us at ease even in the most complex situations. We would highly recommend Tony (and have) to family, friends and colleagues.”

“Tony was amazing to work with! He was very quick when answering all of our questions or scheduling calls to talk about any possible issues that made us worry. He really helped us feel comfortable through the whole process of buying a house for the first time. We wouldn’t have felt as “safe” as we did when signing all the confusing legal documents when closing if he wouldn’t have been sitting next to us that day. He even followed up a couple days after to make sure we were still doing alright!! We would recommend Tony to anyone who would ask for help when buying or selling a house, he is the BEST!”
Fernanda and Aaron M.
“Tony worked with us to have an Estate Plan created – a Living Trust and Powers of Attorney. Like most people we know, it had been many years since we had simple Wills done – and we had no idea what to do. Tony patiently guided us through the process; explaining the documents and how they were addressing our family needs. We recommend him without reservation!”
