Estate Planning

At Brewe Layman we advise our clients to consider estate planning well before the crisis occurs. While the notion of facing difficult decisions sometimes prevents families and individuals from addressing their estate planning needs, we’ve developed an approach to estate planning that we’re told can actually be quite rewarding. Our clients come away feeling prepared for life’s changes and confident they have taken advisable steps to ensure their family’s well-being.

Estate planning is much more than a Last Will and Testament and the disbursement of property in the event of a death. For example, a Durable Power of Attorney empowers your designated family member or friend to make critical decisions about your welfare and/or financial affairs should you become unable to do so yourself by virtue of some sort of incapacity.

At Brewe Layman we have the expertise to help you anticipate the difficult “what if” estate planning scenarios and help you in planning accordingly.

Let us assist with advice and preparation of Last Will and Testaments, Community Property Agreements, Prenuptial Agreements, Living Together Agreements, Trust Agreements, Living Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney, Health Care Powers of Attorney or with skillful and experienced representation in Guardianship proceedings/litigation and Probate matters.

We welcome both new and existing clients to come in for a consultation to determine which Estate Planning tools will best meet your objectives and needs. For additional questions about Estate Planning, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
