Every individual, every family, is different. For that reason, every estate plan should also be different. Estate plans are important tools used to protect your assets and see that your assets are passed on to the next generation appropriately. They should not come in one-size-fits-all.
At The Law Offices of C. Lee Hewitt, we start the estate planning process by conducting an in-depth interview with you. We will learn about you, your property, your family and your wishes. We will work hard to produce a plan that makes sense for you.

The Tools of Estate Planning
Our attorneys consider estate planning a natural extension of family law. Essentially, the purpose of most estate plans is to help care for your family by providing for them in the case of death or incapacity.
To accomplish this goal, we use a wide range of estate planning tools:
- Wills are the backbone of any estate plan.
- Trusts are flexible tools that can be used to accomplish a wide range of goals, most importantly avoiding the costs of probate.
- Advance health care directives and powers of attorney allow your family to do what is right for you if you are no longer able to make decisions on your own.
We pride ourselves on educating you about all of your options so you can make the decisions that make sense for you. You can count on us to answer your questions and give you the guidance you need to create your estate plan.
