At Kelly, Parker & Cohen, LLP, we provide individualized, comprehensive Estate Planning and Administration services for every stage in the life cycle.

Our attorneys provide a full range of estate planning services that include:
- Financial Powers of Attorney
- Healthcare Powers of Attorney
- Living Wills and Healthcare Directives
A will is the most basic form of Estate Planning, and it enables a person to decide who will receive their property, what amount the person will receive, and how the person will receive it. A will also allows you to appoint an executor to handle your estate assets.
Financial Power of Attorney
A financial durable power of attorney is a document that authorizes another person to act as your agent on your behalf in financial matters. The agent only has the authority to act on a person’s behalf while they are alive.
Healthcare Power of Attorney
A healthcare power of attorney appoints a person to make medical decisions on your behalf should you become incapacitated and are unable to make decisions.
A living will, which is also known as a healthcare directive, permits you to decide how you would like to be treated should you become terminally ill and unable to make these decisions for yourself.
Let us help you with your Estate Planning and Administration needs so that you will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that in the event of catastrophic illness, sudden death, or other tragedy you and your family will be protected and your final wishes will be honored.
