Wills and Estate Planning

At White & McCarthy, our attorneys and staff take the time to understand our client’s specific plans and goals before recommending and drafting any documents. Because each client is unique, we do not believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead of assuming your needs, we engage clients in a pre-meeting questionnaire (pdf) that serves as the starting point for our half-hour free initial consultation. The insight gleaned from our interview presents a clear picture of the specific ways we can best help our clients reach their goals.

White & McCarthy’s comprehensive estate planning services include writing or amending:

  • Wills, codicils and testamentary trusts
  • Revocable and irrevocable living trusts
  • General, limited and special powers of attorney
