We develop and execute wills, various types of trusts, powers of attorney, advance medical directives, and more, giving our clients the tools they need to protect their rights and to properly transfer assets to heirs and beneficiaries.
Estate Planning Professionals in Winfield
At our law firm, we realize that your estate plan should be customized to address your unique needs and goals for the future. A “one-size-fits-all” approach is not appropriate and could lead to costly consequences for your estate and your loved ones. That is why we place an emphasis on getting to know our clients and communicating with them directly and openly about their financial objectives, priorities, and values. Doing so allows us to tailor a strategy designed to meet each client’s circumstances.
The skilled estate planning lawyers at Anderson Attorneys & Advisors provide assistance with:
- Developing and updating wills;
- Creating trusts, including living trusts, charitable trusts, incentive trusts, and special needs trusts;
- Assigning powers of attorney for health care and property;
- Preparing advance medical directives such as living wills and do-not-resuscitate orders; and
- Seeking and appointing guardianships.
We know how challenging the process of estate planning can be. With our knowledge and experience, we can help reduce your stress and anxiety and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
