Securing your legacy
You work hard for your family, so knowing that you have planned for their long-term well being and financial security can bring you comfort. At Letellier Law Offices, PC, we thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, protecting your home from liens, minimizing taxes, establishing Guardianship for your children, establishing Guardianships and Conservatorships for your elderly family members, caring for your pets, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones.

Drafting your Living Will, Health Care Proxy, Durable Power of Attorney and Last Will and Testament
A  Last Will and Testament is essential at every stage of your life. Your Living Will sets the parameters for medical intervention should you become incapacitated and your Health Care Proxy names the person(s) you choose and trust to make medical decisions for you.  A Durable Power of Attorney names the person(s) you choose and trust to make legal and day to day decisions should you become incapacitated. These documents assure that when you are most vulnerable, your wishes will be honored.

Your Will provides the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes upon your death. A Will is necessary if you intend to leave property to a person or entity other than a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, a friend or a charity, or if you want to disinherit a family member. If you die without a will, the court determines how your property is distributed, who cares for your children and even what happens to your pet – making decisions that might not reflect your desires.

We draft Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney, Health Care Proxies, and Living Will ensuring that your intentions are honored.

Changing your Will
As your life changes, so might your estate plan. You may need to update your Will throughout your life. We draft valid Codicils that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, number of children, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.

Appointment of guardianship

If you have minor children, your will allows you to make decisions about their future care. This is especially crucial if you are a single parent or if both parents die in a common incident. If you do not name a guardian, the court will appoint a guardian for your children and can make decisions adverse to your ultimate parenting goals. You can also make arrangements for your pets’ care in your will, including naming a guardian to take responsibility for your pets.
