Dealing with life’s changes can be highly emotional. You may find yourself having to handle medical and legal issues that can seem overwhelming. It’s important that you have an advocate who understands our legal system, and can offer compassionate, knowledgeable advice when you need it. At Turnbull & Stark, PC, you’ll find a variety of services designed to help you understand all your legal options, and create a framework in which you, your loved ones, and your property, will be protected.
Our estate planning services were created specifically to help you achieve three goals: controlling your property while you’re living and healthy in order to provide for yourself and your family should you become disabled; distribution of your property in the manner you see fit; and, minimization of tax burdens, excessive attorney fees, and court costs and delays in passing on your property.
Powers of attorney and health care directives will help you plan for the smooth transition of control over financial affairs and medical care in the event you or your loved one becomes incapacitated, with an emphasis on HIPAA privacy provisions.
Attorneys Stephen J. Stark, Heather L. McCreery, and
S. Christopher Conway have 40 years of combined legal experience.
