Estate Planning

Attorneys in our firm provide clients with a wide variety of
Estate Planning Services.
These Include:

Preparation of wills, which include provisions for naming a guardian for minor children if both parents are deceased.

Preparation of children's trust wills. This type of will requires that funds be kept in a trust for the benefit of children until they reach a certain age, an age chosen by the parent.  Without such a trust, a child would be entitled to receive a inheritance at age 18, with no strings attached.

Preparation of revocable or irrevocable trusts, or trust wills.  Use of these estate planning tools can satisfy many different client objectives, including avoiding probate and decreasing or eliminating estate tax.

Preparation of elder law planning documents such as powers of attorney and living wills.

We provide complete probate services for clients in Minnesota and North Dakota.
