Estate planning is not a do-it-yourself project. Ted will work with you to understand your objectives and then express them through clear and concise documents that avoid the cost and delay resulting from family disagreements and the necessity of subsequent interpretation by a court.

Individuals, couples and families should regularly attend to estate planning responsibilities and update existing plans. Of special importance for parents with small children is providing for child care and support in the event of the parents’ deaths; for older people, estate planning is crucial. Often overlooked documents include powers of attorney and instructions for medical treatment in the event of disability.
