Estate Planning is the process of determining your wishes in the event of incapacity and/or death and documenting those wishes appropriately, considering your preferences, and any relevant tax issues.

“Everything has been so straight forward and easy. My guess is that your clients take that for granted and don't realize what a jewel they've found. Perhaps you don't realize how good you are." ~ Anne B., client
Elder Law involves capacity issues, initiating legal proceedings (such as a conservatorship) if the person has not previously completed estate planning documents, and planning for receipt of public benefits.
