Proper estate planning is essential to managing one’s personal and financial affairs while they are alive, in the case of incapacity, and after they have passed away.  The best gift you can give your loved ones, is to have a proper estate plan.

The goal in estate planning is to provide management and maximize the enjoyment of their real and personal property during the client’s lifetime, and for the beneficiaries after a person has passed.

Each client is different and needs an estate plan tailored to their specific needs.  The centerpiece of an estate plan is the revocable trust.

Brett A. Gilman’s practice focuses on drafting of wills, trusts, durable powers of attorney, advanced health care directives, and other important estate planning documents.

What the clients are saying:

Thank you so much for making it easy to create our Family Trust and our Estate Plan.  We had put if off for too long, mostly because we didn’t understand exactly what to do.  You took the time to walk us through each step and were so helpful with all of our questions, many of which we asked more than once! It is such a good feeling to have our trust finished and to know that our family will have a little less stress during a very stressful time.
Thanks again!

Tammie & Brian S.
