Estate Planning

When it comes to estate planning, there is no easy template or automated service that can tailor to all of your needs. That’s why it’s important you receive the proper guidance.

The only way to be sure you, your loved ones, and your assets are protected is to develop a customized estate plan. We can guide you through the estate planning process and work with you to determine the appropriate documents that best meet your needs and ensure that your wishes are fulfilled after you’re gone. We will give you the personalized attention you deserve to come up with a strategic plan that meets your needs.

Probate and Estate Administration

When a loved one passes away, the process of closing the estate and taking care of all the details can be confusing, especially while you’re grieving. There are many things that need to be taken care of. Stone Law supports you and your family through the estate administration and probate process, from the first things that need to be handled (funeral, burial and memorial arrangements; care for minors, elderly and pets dependent on the decedent for care; notifying family, friends, employers; and arranging for an obituary in the local paper), to the things that need to be handled over the next several months.

When you’re ready do deal with the more intricate issues after a death, we’ll guide you through the difficult and often confusing task of settling your loved one’s final affairs. And we’ll work hard to make sure everything is taken care of according to the wishes of the deceased.

Elder Law

As you age, it’s important to know your rights and to have a plan. Stone Law can help you figure out long-term care insurance, asset transfers, setting up funds for children or loved ones, Medicaid planning, and planning for who will care for you and make decisions if you are unable to do so for yourself.

Asset Protection
