Franklin Wills & Estate Planning Attorneys
Putting Your Estate Intentions Into Proper Legal Form
Decisions about how you want your property to be divided, or how your health care will be handled if you become incapacitated, are inherently sensitive. The legal counsel you turn to should pay close attention to your values and wishes, and be able to give them the proper legal form.
At the Roche & Roche, PC, we help clients provide for their families and distribute their property through the careful creation of wills and the provision of other estate planning services. Throughout the estate planning and administration process, we pay close attention to our clients' values and desires for their family members, charitable organizations, and others.
Call us at (508) 528-8300 to learn more about how we can help. We serve clients throughout Eastern Massachusetts.
Where To Start With Wills and Estate Planning
A sound estate plan in Massachusetts begins with these four components:
- Living will − Declaration of how the person would like healthcare decisions to be handled, if he or she becomes unable to do so
- Durable power of attorney − Used for financial matters
- Health care proxy − Designates who will make the decisions
Depending on the person, there are often additional components to an estate plan. These can include trusts, guardianships, conservatorships, charitable gifts and other arrangements. When you meet with one of our attorneys, we can help you determine which procedures and structures will work best for you, given your goals for yourself and your family.
Attentive To Client Needs and Desires
A health care directive or power of attorney is an immensely powerful document, and should be carefully drawn. We realize that making estate planning and end-of-life decisions requires much thought and reflection. We listen closely to our clients, and based on their wishes and values, help them make these sometimes-difficult decisions.
As a person ages and his or her life changes, the estate plan may also need to change. We work with clients over time to ensure that their wills and other components of their estate plan reflect their current needs, desires, and expectations.
Our clients benefit from our extensive experience in this field. Our firm does not charge Boston prices. Instead, Roche & Roche, PC is known for timely and cost-efficient legal services and advice.
