We are here to answer your questions and help you create a solid estate plan that will stand the test of time.

What Is Included In An Estate Plan?

While years ago a simple will was often the only thing a person needed to adequately plan for the future, life is much more complex than it used to be for many families. To protect your finances and your wishes, additional estate planning instruments such as trusts and powers of attorney may be necessary to achieve your goals. Attorney Russell J. Holesinger will meet with you in a free consultation to discuss your family, your assets and your future plans, and then advise you on what to include in your comprehensive estate plan.

Attorney Russell J. Holesinger stays current on the latest in estate planning and probate law through continuing education courses, which he completes annually.

Russell will ask important questions to get to the heart of your wishes and ensure that they will be met when you are no longer able to manage your estate yourself.

What Is A Living Trust?

A living trust is an effective instrument for many of our clients. This unique trust allows you to continue managing your estate while you are alive and pass assets onto the next generation upon your death. You also have the option to keep property in the trust for an extended period of time and then have it distributed according to your wishes later. Attorney Russell J. Holesinger is a lawyer with extensive experience creating living trusts tailored to the individual needs of his clients — particularly those with multigenerational goals.
