Estate planning is a foundation of our practice at The Kent Law Firm. We can help you create a diversified and comprehensive estate plan for any estate-related contingency, concerning:
- Durable powers of attorney. We can work with you to appoint a representative to administer your estate, managing your assets, and sign legal documents if you are no longer able to do so yourself. Depending on how your power of attorney is structured, this person can also be your estate representative who handles your estate matters in probate.
- Advance health care directives (living wills). We can assist you in creating an advance directive that instructs others concerning the degree to which you wish to receive medical care if you are incapacitated. Such documents are often called living wills when they prohibit medical treatments or procedures that prolong life unnecessarily.
- Health care proxies. With our help, you can appoint a trusted person — such as a family member, or the physician who is providing your treatment — to make health care decisions for you if you are incapacitated. Although a health care proxy is similar to a living will, there is an important difference: it leaves the decisions regarding to your treatment up to an individual of your choice, rather than a written directive.
- Guardianships and conservatorships. One of the hardest things that a person will go through is determining what should happen to a loved one who is incapacitated. We assist our clients in establishing guardianships and conservatorships to ensure a responsible party will meet your personal and financial needs (or the needs of your spouse or minor child) in the case of disability or incapacity.
