What Is An Estate Law Lawyer?
Your estate is a compilation of your land, possessions, financial securities, money, and other assets. For it to be included in your estate, you must have full ownership of it. For example, something owned in joint tenancy is separate from your estate. Anything you inherit can become a part of your estate. Likewise, you may pass anything that’s in your name from your estate to an heir.

In particular, we assist with your estate planning before you marry, and we work to ensure your wishes are followed after your passing. We understand all the complicated legal jargon that might be cumbersome or difficult to learn regarding how to protect your assets, what you’re allowed to do–legally–with your assets, and what all should be done to increase the likelihood of your assets being taken care of properly.
