ESTATE PLANNING

We are here to help you plan for your future and your legacy. Andrew S. Mansfield will review with you the complexity of your estate and your goals. Major life changes, such as getting married or starting a family may lead you to review your health, financial, and tax planning goals. After having children, some families decide to create trusts, which is a document similar to a will, but also helps manage property before death.

We are here to provide services in the following areas:

  • Trusts: A trust is a legal and fiduciary arrangement in which one party holds legal title to another's property, as a trustee, and manages the property for them on their behalf. It is similar to a will, but controls how assets are to be transferred or used during life (for instance, children may be providedcertain assets before a parents' death).

  • Wills: A will is a legal document indicating how an individual's property and affairs are to be transferred and managed after death.

  • Living Wills: A living will is a legal document outlining medical and end-of-life preferences in the event that you are unable to communicate these wishes.

  • Overall Estate Plan: Estate planning lawyers often coordinate with clients in a more complete manner, by reviewing an individual's estate, asking about preferences and life goals, and advising on the client's options.
