Estate Planning

No matter your age, whether you have kids, and whether you are single, married, or part of an unmarried couple, estate planning is crucial to protecting your family, your finances and your future. At Andersen Law PC, we will work with you to develop a custom estate plan that will do all three.

The five estate planning documents you will likely need are:

  • Will
  • Living will
  • Medical power of attorney
  • Financial power of attorney
  • Trust

Other documents may be necessary due to your unique circumstances.

While we are proud to offer unbundled legal services and support individuals preparing their own legal documents when it makes sense, we strongly discourage using online platforms to prepare estate planning documents. We have seen too many self-drafted wills lead to disastrous or unintended outcomes in probate.

To learn how we can work with you to build an estate plan that will accomplish what you intend, give us a call at 720-922-3880 or schedule your free consultation by clicking the button below.
