Estate Planning

A comprehensive estate plan will protect your family and other loved ones. This is why our team performs an in-depth analysis of personal and business interests in order to facilitate a plan that best meets your individual goals. A full range of income, gift and death tax consequences must be considered when transferring property during a lifetime or upon your death.

We will work with you to prepare the proper documents, including a will, trust, power(s) of attorney, to ensure you have financial security and asset protection for the future.

Estate Administration

McCormick Law Firm provides assistance and service in the administration of estates, working with family members and executors during a difficult time to properly carry out the decedent’s wishes. Our firm will lead the executor step-by-step through the probate process, from the initial meeting, to the filing of tax returns and preparation of executor accountings, and ultimate estate distribution.

Elder Law

A growing area of the law that is often misunderstood, the ultimate goal of McCormick is to recognize the individual needs of each client. Many of our clients seek help and advice with respect to family members who are unable to care for themselves or in making arrangements for others to handle their affairs. When an individual is unable to afford long-term care, McCormick can help to identify the best resources to assist with the financial obligations, while protecting assets from nursing home costs. Elder Law is not necessary, due to rules, regulations and laws, sometimes only advice is necessary.
