Estate Planning Services
Our experienced attorneys will ensure your assets are distributed accurately and efficiently, that guardians are appointed for minor children, and that your estate’s management is executed properly.
We work to make sure your wishes are carried out should you ever be in a medical state in which you are being kept alive by artificial means and have no reasonable means of recovery.
Power of Attorney
Our experts at DaMore Law will prepare the proper documentation you need to grant someone the legal ability to make financial decisions on your behalf, now or at some point in the future.
Health Care Proxy
Our attorneys will prepare a health care proxy, also known as a medical power of attorney, which allows you to appoint someone to make medical decisions on your behalf should you become incapacitated. Without this, families may dispute who has the right to make such a decision, leading to court battles.
Estate Planning Areas Of Importance
At DaMore Law, we work to ensure your future is prepared for and protected. Our experts handle each area of estate planning with care and years of experience so you can live your life without worry.
A revocable trust, also known as a living trust, grants you the power to avoid probate proceedings, set up marital tax planning, provide for beneficiaries, and appoint a trustee to manage the finances, all while retaining control of your assets.
This type of trust can also help minimize estate taxes and avoid probate proceedings, but it has the additional ability to prevent your assets from being taken by the state to pay for nursing home care. Our experienced attorneys can inform you of which type of trust would be the best choice for you in your unique situation.
Elder/Long-Term Care Planning
Don’t wait until it’s too late to create a long-term plan for loved ones. We work with a number of talented financial planners, assisted living facilities, and elder care experts who can provide valuable guidance through this crucial process.

Probate & Estate Administration
The long and complicated process of validating and carrying out a will can be burdensome, especially on those who just lost a loved one. We help ease that burden by filing the necessary documents for you in court, sending out notifications, and assisting you throughout the process to ensure everything is done correctly.
