Estate Planning Documents

Cremation Instructions: This allows you to appoint a person to specifically carry out your wishes for cremation and disposition of ashes. 

 

Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care: This allows you to appoint a person to make certain health care decisions and is not affected in the event of disability.

The 2 most commons trusts are a Revocable Living Trust and a Real Estate Trust.

A Revocable Living Trust allows you to name a trustee to manage your assets during your lifetime and upon your passing.  You can manage the assets by placing them in a trust and keep them available to you during your life.  You can revoke it at any time.  A married couple will have a joint Revocable Living Trust.  Not everyone needs a Revocable Living Trust.  Call us today at (206) 259-1259 to see if a Revocable Living Trust is right for you.

A Revocable Living Trust is complex and is designed to lower taxes, fees, and costs as well as avoid probate.  Our rates for a Revocable Living Trust depends on the complexity and need.

A Real Estate Trust is specific to any real estate or home that you own.  Instead of or in addition to a Revocable Living Trust, you can provide specific instructions and directives regarding your home. 

A Real Estate Trust names you, the owners, as both the Grantor and Trustee and you have all rights to the home.  Our rates depend on the complexity and the county where the home is located. 

 
"Working with Ada was phenomenal. She is very intelligent and a great listener. I never had any doubts and was confident knowing she was there to assist me and was on my side. She is professional and a force to be reckoned with. My wife made several attempts to consult with other lawyers over the phone before attaining one for hire. She stated that when she spoke to Ada on the phone, Ada was asking key questions about our situation, was upfront, and tactical. This in turn lead to a great experience. Ada, my family and I thank you for all you did! We appreciate [the] effort you put into what you accomplished. Thanks."    - Client
