Dover Estate Lawyers
Trusts, Estate Planning & Probate
Estate Planning means different things to different people. Michael educates
clients as to what legal issues are relevant to their specific circumstances,
and customizes an estate plan based on each client’s needs and goals.
Committed to Your Family’s Economic Success
Estate Planning: Can involve preparing Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, or Healthcare
Directives. Typically, an estate plan is used to minimize estate taxes
or to allow for assets to pass outside of probate. However, an estate
plan can offer other benefits as well, such as control of your wealth,
protection from your heirs’ creditors or a beneficiary’s inability
to manage money, and privacy regarding your financial situation.
Probate And Wills: When a loved one passes away, we understand you are dealing with a lot
more than the legal aspects of the death. We remove the burden of dealing
with the legal aspects by helping to navigate the complex state laws,
and help identify and fulfill your legal obligations.
Be Prepared With Documents While You Are Alive
Advance Healthcare Directive: Don’t leave your medical care to chance in the event that you are
incapacitated and unable to express consent. A well written advance directive
is a wise precaution to explain your wishes if a catastrophe should happen.
Power of Attorney: Is a legal document giving someone authority over all legal or financial
matters, typically to be used in the event that you are incapacitated
in some way and unable to make your own decisions.
Anyone can benefit from having an estate plan in place in case something
happens in the future, as life can be unpredictable. Since 1987, our Dover

What is Estate Planning?
Everyone has their own version of an “estate,” whether it comes
in the form of a car, house, investments, furniture, or personal possessions.
Estate planning allows you to dictate where your possessions go and have
other plans in place in the event that you pass away or are incapacitated
and can no longer care for yourself or others.
Typically, an estate plan is used to minimize estate taxes or to allow
for assets to pass outside of probate. However, an estate plan can offer
other benefits as well, such as control of your wealth, protection from
your heirs’ creditors or a beneficiary’s inability to manage
money, and privacy regarding your financial situation.
