Estate Planning & Probate

Wills, Trusts, & Powers of Attorney

Estate Planning

Estate Planning is a very important tool that can help ensure that your wishes are known and followed during your life, if you are in any way incapacitated, and upon your passing.  Additionally, planning your estate appropriately will help minimize tax burdens imposed upon your estate and maximize the value of the assets that you pass on to your loved ones.

The Law Office of Christopher T. Denelle, LLC will work closely with you to determine the most effective means to plan your estate.  Our firm can assist you in the drafting of Wills whether they are simple or complex based upon your unique circumstances.  Additionally, we may employ the use of certain Trusts to achieve a variety of goals.  Trusts allow you to include virtually any language that you wish and allow you to achieve numerous results through their wording.

Our firm will also assist you in the preparation of both financial and medical Powers of Attorney.  These documents will help ensure that, in the event your incapacity, you will have a loved one available to ensure that your financial well-being is maintained and that your health care wishes are followed.
