Estate Planning, Business Law, Real Estate Attorney


Wills and Trusts

All estate plans should include at least a will, a financially durable power of attorney, and healthcare directives. In addition, trusts can be utilized to minimize taxes and administration costs, as well as manage estates both during life and after death. At MacLaren Law LLC, we can assist you in determining which documents are right for you and help create peace of mind that your legacy is secure.
