Wills and Estate Planning Lawyer

Shannon Murphy, Skilled Experienced Professional

Choosing the right lawyer is a very important decision, but knowing you have the right to choose is also very important

Being a small business owner has helped me develop the communication skills needed to talk to you face-to-face and in a language you can clearly understand.

Here are four things you should consider when choosing a lawyer; experience, size of the firm, cost and legal practice areas offered.

Your wills and estate lawyer today could be your real estate lawyer and or your corporate lawyer in the future.

Wills and Trusts

The basic purpose of a will is to ensure your assets go to the right beneficiaries when the time comes. Proper planning directs your assets to your loved ones. Is a “living will” the same thing as a “Power of Attorney”? No. A Power of Attorney is a legal document in which you name a specific person to act on your behalf. A living will is what you want to happen if you become ill and can’t communicate your wishes.

Power of Attorney

If you want your family to be able to immediately take over for you, you must designate a person or persons you trust in proper legal documents to perform the power of attorney role. A Power of Attorney is a legal document that gives someone else the right to act on your behalf.
