Salem Estate Planning Attorney

All major transitions in life — including marriage, the birth of a child and divorce — require re-examining and possibly rethinking your estate plan. Estate plans are meant to be updated to keep up with life’s changing circumstances. A current, well-thought-out estate plan can help give you peace of mind in preparing for the future.

We provide legal guidance for clients who need to update their plan as well as those seeking to implement an estate plan for the first time. Our attorneys provide personalized legal counsel and individual attention. We can help you ascertain your options for establishing an estate plan that reflects your priorities and goals.

Crafting An Estate Plan That Meets Your Needs

An estate plan can include multiple components. Typically, a will is the core document that conveys your wishes regarding your property and your guardian designation for any minor children. More complex estate plans can use a trust to achieve various purposes that might not be feasible through a will — for example, minimizing estate taxes, providing for minor children and caring for loved ones with special needs. There are many types of trusts that can be used to accomplish specific objectives.

Estate plans also include important legal tools such as powers of attorney and health care proxies to establish your wishes and hedge against the possibility of incapacity. Each of these components should be tailored to reflect your unique needs and goals.
