Making An Estate Plan For You And Your Family

At Law Offices of Dennis L. Duncan, PC, we help people create and implement wise and successful estate plans that protect their legacies and serve their families for generations.We help individuals draft and maintain:

  • Wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advanced healthcare directives
  • Special needs trusts

These legal documents will provide you and your loved ones with peace of mind, and simplify the process of carrying out directions by your family once you are no longer able to speak for yourself.

Developing an estate plan does more than ensure that your wishes are fulfilled; it is also a way to take care of your family. Making your own decisions now spares them stress, grief and expense when the time comes to administer your plan.

Representation During Probate

We frequently represent multiple generations of the same family, helping heirs to an estate through probate of a will that we initially drafted. We can even walk you through the steps necessary to redo or update a will because of a life-changing event.

Lasting friendships are formed because we get to know our clients and their families over time. We take a long-term approach with our clients, helping them to make prudent decisions regarding their legacies that will safeguard their assets and the futures of their loved ones.

We also represent people who have been unlawfully excluded from a loved one's will or estate. If you were relying on an estate for financial support, we can help you pursue financial relief, both immediately and for the future.

Elder Law And Long-Term Care Planning

Long-term care in a nursing home or other assisted living facility can be expensive, and many seniors rely on Medicaid to help cover those costs. At the Law Offices of Dennis L. Duncan, PC, we help you develop individualized strategies that help you to shield your assets, pass on your legacy and afford to live in a nursing home.

The laws governing Medicaid eligibility are complex; and if you fail to meet certain requirements, your eligibility may be at stake. Attorney Dennis L. Duncan knows the government regulations at work with Medicaid. He will help you determine your eligibility for these benefits as well as how to arrange your assets in your estate plan to avoid ineligibility down the road.
