Estate Planning

There are many options available when creating an estate plan. However, not every method available is appropriate for everyone. The knowledgeable attorneys of Paster, Rice & Castleman, LLC know how to effectively create individual estate plans that reflect each client's unique circumstances and goals.

Our wills and trusts attorneys listen carefully to our clients when creating estate plans. We evaluate what assets our clients have, what form their assets are in, and what our clients would like to do with those assets upon their passing. Once we have a thorough understanding of their individual circumstances, we create an individual estate plan drafted specifically to address and meet those goals and potentially to avoid probate.

Some estate planning instruments we utilize may include:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Health Care Proxies
  • Durable Powers of Attorney
  • Living wills
  • Deeds with Life Estates
  • Other estate planning mechanisms
