Estate Planning Services Designed for You
Gerry Woods provides personalized attention to each and every client. He understands that estate planning needs vary from client to client. Gerry works hands-on with our clients and strives to help them understand every step they take and every option they have. Estate planning options include the following:
- Wills(the traditional manner of passing on assets): Without a will, the state determines who will get your assets.
- Trusts:Our firm can establish trusts that include revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts and insurance trusts.
- Powers of Attorney:A power of attorney can designate a trusted person to make financial decisions of your behalf if you become incapacitated. A health care power of attorney designates a trusted person to make health care decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated.
- Living wills:A living will can ensure the end-of-life decisions that are made in the event of your incapacitation are the decisions you wanted. Your family members can be spared the difficulty of making this decision.
The Elder Care Law Center provides estate planning services that fully consider your needs. We offer Medicaid planning services that can protect your assets and help you qualify for medical assistance. Gerry Woods has an LL.M. in tax, a distinction that is particularly useful in tax planning to minimize or eliminate federal estate taxes.
