Law Offices of Norma Hand Brill

What you accomplish with a comprehensive estate plan is providing for an orderly disposition of your property at your death, and having provisions in place in the event of incapacity. We all want our possessions to pass to our loved ones, or to charitable organizations that reflect our values and concerns.  That is the testamentary part of your estate plan, what happens at death. 

Another area of concern to be addressed in your estate plan is what will happen in the event you become incapacitated.  Who will make your health care and financial decisions for you in the event you are unable to do so?  This is the lifetime part of your estate plan, what could happen to you while you are still alive. 

Individuals who have been diagnosed with cognitive impairment often still have the ability to execute estate planning documents. With any diagnosis of illness, mental or physical, it is even more important to be sure necessary documents are in place so that proper planning may be implemented, whether immediately or in the future.

We will advise you about Trusts, Wills, Durable Powers of Attorney and Advance Directives for health care to ensure that all your wants, needs, goals and directions will be met.
