Wills & Trusts

Want to avoid the time, expense, and aggravation of probate? A trust can be the answer!  Schedule an appointment to discuss whether a Revocable Trust may be beneficial for you and your heirs.

Preparing for death, which can be difficult to think about, is an aspect of life in which you can work to minimize taxes, while providing for your children and other heirs. It’s also wise to make plans for your end-of-life care in the event you are unable to communicate your wishes directly. That way your wishes can be known and followed by those caring for you. Estate planning is not just for those with million-dollar estates. Estate planning is for everyone.


We can help you provide directives for the distribution of your assets, medical decisions, and other financial decisions when you are no longer able to make these decisions yourself.

Durable Powers of Attorney

Select someone to handle your affairs if you are no longer able to make the decisions yourself (coma, Alzheimer’s, or other absence from the area).

Living Wills/Healthcare Directive

Select someone to make medical decisions for you in the event that you are unable to make them yourself and outline your wishes for end of life care.


Select someone to handle your affairs after you pass away and direct to whom your probate assets should go.

Select Guardians for Minors

Select who will take care of and be in charge of your minor children if neither legal parent is living.


Select a Trustee who will manage your assets during your lifetime and provide specific directions as to how to distribute those assets when you die.  A Trust can reduce or eliminate estate taxes and/or probate fees, place limitations on when distributions will be made (certain ages or milestones), and provide protection for those with special needs.

You may think you do not need a Will because you own very little, your assets are all held in joint accounts, or have specifically named beneficiaries. However, future assets may be acquired through inheritance, gift, or by winning the lottery. Putting your wishes in writing through a valid Will or Trust helps to ensure that your desires will be known and honored after your death.

If a person dies without a valid Will, Delaware law determines who inherits the estate. That can be problematic if you wanted your class ring to go to your high school sweetheart or a piece of heirloom jewelry to go to a family friend.

Preparing your Will online or via a stationery set through your local office supply store can be equally as problematic. Often those programs are not state law specific. They do not know of any intricacies in Delaware law. Further, they don’t always know all the right questions to ask. Issues needing special attention may include:
