A careful analysis of your situation allows the Law Office Forest Myers to tailor your estate planning documents to your specific needs. No two wills or powers of attorney are identical. Each one needs to address the circumstances of your family. You may need a trust for minor children or a Special Needs Trust for a mentally or physically challenged child or family. Only by seeking out your special situation can a lawyer carefully craft these important documents to meet those unique issues.
