Estate planning is essential to ensure that the largest portion of your present net worth passes to those you decide should inherit. GuttormsenĀ & Hartley can handle the preparation of wills and trusts which will provide for the orderly disposition of property to your loved ones. Through the use of wills, trusts and other estate planning techniques, estate taxes can be significantly reduced, and in some cases, completely eliminated.

Another important estate planning tool if you should become disabled or incapacitated due to health reasons is the Power of Attorney. This instrument allows you to choose ahead of time the person that you feel is most suited to make financial and/or health care decisions on your behalf if you are ever unable to make them yourself.

If you have questions let GuttormsenĀ & Hartley answer all of your questions about wills, trust, powers of attorney and guardianship.
