Estate Planning

The Law Office of Gilbert Vara, Jr. is your competent legal resource for estate planning. Mr. Vara counsels individuals in the creation of a sound estate plan that clearly expresses a client’s wishes. This planning usually involves the careful consideration of a Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney, Medical Power of Attorney, Directive to Physicians, Family or Surrogates, Declaration of Guardian In The Event of Later Incapacity of Need of Guardian, Authorization to Release Medical Information under HIPAA, Revocable or Irrevocable Living Trusts, and Family Limited Partnerships.

Mr. Vara can build a complete entity structure in the event a family business may exist to ensure that the business will continue in the event of the death of a founder or owner. Such consideration will often include the creation of a limited liability company, partnership, or corporation to ensure continuity to the future growth of a client’s business while providing predictability through competent estate planning for the key owners.

Mr. Vara seeks to help clients spend less time worrying about tomorrow by knowing the law and the predictable outcomes that come from careful and thoughtful planning. Individuals as well as new or existing businesses are counseled regarding:

  • Formation of proper entities such as partnerships, limited liability companies or corporations
  • Effective business planning
  • Business organization with a focus on growth and protection against liabilities
  • Trust and partnership development as a tool for future growth

Please call us to advise you of the best path to predictable, consistent outcomes whether your estate planning involves the simplicity of a small estate to ensure peace for your family or the desire to build a plan to reduce the complexity of competing business and investment interests.

Your concerns are our priorities. If you need legal representation, please contact us.
