Wills and Estates Attorney

Even if you are not getting on in years or if you are in good health, estate planning is an extremely important part of life. In order to ensure your physical and financial assets are distributed in the way you wish, especially if you own real estate, have at least modest financial holdings or have children. Law Offices of Peter L. Johnston, L.L.C. can advise you and provide you with the planning tailored to your particular situation.

A Last Will & Testament is the only way for you to guarantee that your estate will be distributed in the way that you see fit.

An Advanced Healthcare Directive, also known as a “living will”, will give your selected loved ones the power to continue or discontinue extraordinary measures to preserve your life if you become unable to make those decisions yourself.

If you fear that you may become incapacitated, a Durable Power of Attorney will ensure that someone you trust will be given the legal authority to manage your affairs for you.

A trust will help you make sure that minors you leave behind are adequately protected. Or, if you are a recipient of public assistance and are concerned that a potential windfall may jeopardize your benefits, a special needs trust can be established for you.
