Estate Planning

Estate planning addresses your major concerns for the future by putting legal tools in place to protect yourself, your family, and your property in the event of incapacity or death. Estate planning can address issues such as infirmity during old age and incapacity. With planning and the right documents in place, you can protect your assets by appointing someone you trust to manage your wealth when you cannot. Additionally, you can appoint someone to manage your healthcare decisions when you are unable. Finally, trusts and wills allow you to transfer your property when you pass away. An estate plan can also name guardians for your children.

Real Estate

Real estate attorneys work with individuals and corporations in matters involving real property. Real estate attorneys know the rules and regulations that govern real estate transactions including buying and selling real estate or renting and leasing property. Real estate attorneys draft contracts, deeds, and other legal documents as part of the transfer of property. Real estate attorneys are important in overseeing the transfer of deeds and titles to property whether property has a lien, restrictive covenant or some other legal issue prior to the transfer of real property. Real estate attorneys are valuable when property boundaries, property ownership, easements, or other matters are in dispute.
