Wills, revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, powers of attorney and health care directives are just the starting point. Asset coordination is important too.

Getting to the lawyer's office for an appointment is not always an easy task. For some it is an issue of distance while for others the problem is mobility or poor health and then there are those winter days when no one should be on the road or walking on the ice. That's why we offer video conferencing. If you have a smart phone or a tablet or computer with a video camera and a microphone, you have all the tech you need to make it happen. Contact us to find out how we can make office visits easier for you or family members that want to join in the conversation.
