Estate Planning

Estate planning is the process through which you plan for your financial and health care decisions during your lifetime, as well as determine distribution of your assets on your death. Our Estate Planning Team at Parmenter Law has the knowledge and experience necessary to design an estate plan that provides for your needs and wishes during your life and for those of your loved ones after your death.

Comprehensive Estate Planning Services

Everyone needs to think about estate planning sooner rather than later. Having a comprehensive estate plan in place is especially critical for anyone who owns property in his or her name, for individuals who have a family to care for, and for elders. If you die without a will or estate plan in place, state law — not you — will determine who inherits your assets and property.

Each person’s situation is unique and requires special care and attention during development of an estate plan. At Parmenter Law, we are known for our exceptional client service and insight into each client’s situation, as well as for our compassion for every client and his or her singular situation. Our approach to estate planning takes a broad and long-range view of our client’s circumstances in designing an estate plan that takes that client’s current and future needs and wishes fully into account.

Each estate plan incorporates different components. Developing the plan includes determining which elements are appropriate for the individual client. Our estate planning services include:

  • Wills
  • Irrevocable and revocable trusts, including revocable living trusts and special needs trusts
  • Estate tax planning
  • Business succession planning
  • Prenuptial / post-marital agreements
  • Planning for blended families
  • Divorce estate planning
  • Durable powers of attorney
  • Health care advance directives
  • Long-term care planning
  • Medicaid planning
  • Veterans aid planning
