Estate Planning

If you knew something harmful was about to happen to your family, wouldn't you act to protect them? That is what estate planning is all about. A comprehensive estate plan that includes a will or living trust, powers of attorney for healthcare and property, and irrevocable life insurance trusts ensures that your family is protected at the most vulnerable times. Estate planning also covers succession plans for family owned businesses, guidance for estate and gift tax scenarios, and probate protection. As our population ages, the Estate Planning group at Lavelle Law, Ltd. provides representation in matters of elder law, Medicaid benefit planning, and counsel for Alzheimer care-givers.
