Our Experienced Estate Planning Attorneys Are Here To Help
When it comes to protecting your estate, assets, and wishes, estate planning with experienced attorneys by your side is the best step to take. Estate planning is the process of making arrangements to ensure assets are distributed and your wishes are carried out in the event of your death or disability by creating legally binding documents with instructions for managing and transferring your property, as well as addressing potential tax and legal concerns.
Why Estate Planning?
Estate planning is important because it puts into place documentation that is both useful to beneficiaries and legally binding so organizations, the government, and financial institutions must honor your wishes. Documents you can create with estate planning services include:
Wills - appoint an executor who will be responsible for carrying out your wishes.
Trusts -manage and protect your assets for flexible distribution and minimized estate taxes.
Power of Attorney - grant someone the authority to act on your behalf if you become incapacitated.
Healthcare Directives - living wills and power of attorney provide instructions for healthcare decisions if you are unable to make them yourself.
At Black, Black, and Brown, we’ll ensure that you’re set up with your estate plan using our in-depth process:
Estate Analysis Questionnaire - complete our questionnaire so we have up-to-date information related to your estate.
First consultation - our opportunity to review any questions triggered by the questionnaire and discuss goals for your legacy and your family.

Final draft - after answering all questions and making changes to your documents, we create final documents for your signature.
