Estate Planning

Estate planning is more than completing a will. It is an emotional, yet necessary task that helps to protect your assets while ensuring your wishes are carried out. As your estate grows, the issues that must be addressed become more complex. At Richardson Legal Services, we work with you, your financial planner and your tax planner to put together your team of professional advisors to accomplish your estate plan, regardless of size. Additionally, no estate plan is complete without disability planning. All of our estate plans include a durable power of attorney, healthcare directive and a HIPAA authorization/release.

Elder Law

As the population ages, new laws and new areas of law are being developed to specifically address the needs and challenges of the elderly. Advice from well-meaning friends, family, nursing homes, and other professionals may end up costing your loved ones precious planning time and lost opportunities. At Richardson Legal Services, we have helped many families plan for their aging relatives' current lifestyle needs and changing futures by keeping our eyes keenly focused on the areas of Long-Term Care Planning, Estate Planning and Medicaid Planning.
