jane flaherty experienced estate planning lawyer

Why I Practice Law

Planning ahead to know you and your family will be taken care of in the event of illness, incapacity or death is an incredible gift – which takes a great deal of forethought. With basic estate planning tools, and a thorough discussion of your concerns, together we can create an estate plan which supports you, your spouse, adult children, grandchildren or parents. Licensed over 20 years, I am proud to provide my client’s an understanding, warm, welcoming, and strategic ear while we work through family and business issues.

Life is Uncertain. Control What You Can.™ and let me help you plan for what you cannot control.

Basic estate planning instruments include Financial Powers of Attorney, HIPAA waiver, a Last Will, appropriate business formations and Health Care Powers will assist you and your family with most of life’s challenges.

And when you are affected by a friend or loved one who did not plan ahead, I will work with you to resolve the issues that arise on the path to estate resolution and closure.
