Personalized estate planning
For over five decades, the LLDG team has guided clients through personalized estate planning.
Taking the time now to plan for the future will reap many benefits for you and your family. Estate planning centres around two main elements:
Building a will
Wills provide the foundation to safeguard assets, weather difficult situations after a loved one passes away, and ensure your affairs – including digital assets – are in order.
By no means do these important documents need to be developed at a difficult time in life. We often see clients prepare wills before or after they get married, have a child, or go on a vacation overseas.
We will co-create wills that provide security for your family, protect against unanticipated scenarios, avoid complications, and distributes your assets in the most desirable manner.
Customizing a Power of Attorney
A power of attorney (POA) gives a trusted person or persons authority over your affairs while you are either unavailable or incapable of making decisions about your personal care or property.
Our lawyers will discuss your values and goals, and carefully ensure that your legacy is protected according to your wishes, avoiding future disputes that can damage relationships.
We will also recommend legal instruments that address other issues, such as a living trust, advanced medical directives, or digital asset planning, to achieve your specific goals.
Our basic estate planning package includes:
- Power of attorney for property
- Power of attorney for personal care
- Advance directive for medical care (living will)
