Estate planning is a topic that it always seems like it could be taken care of later. The reality is that preparing for your estate, especially if you have a family, is simply one of those responsibilities that need to be taken care of sooner rather than later.

An estate plan can be as simple as drafting a will. It can also be much more complex depending on what sort of issues need to be resolved by your estate plan. For example, do you have children who will require a guardian? An estate plan can help answer crucial questions like that, so no one is left in doubt of what you wanted.

We offer our assistance on a wide range of estate planning matters, including:

  • Wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advance health care directives
  • Living wills
  • Guardianships

Have You Been Named As Executor To A Loved One’s Estate?

The probate process is where the will is submitted to the court for settling of debts, distribution of assets and resolving other issues. It can be complicated and take some time. Most people do not know what is required to be able to fulfill that role. We can help guide you and take that pressure off your shoulders.

Military Estate Planning

When building an estate plan for a current or former service member, it is important to make proper arrangements for any benefits that could then be applied to a surviving spouse or children.

Quote Cirecle 2

Rick Rousseau and his team at the Criss & Rousseau Law firm handled my affairs and legal needs in a timely and professional manner. I very much appreciated the attention to detail and the warm and inviting atmosphere. If you are a veteran it would be well worth your time to visit with this retired JAG officer.

Rick Rousseau was a life saver for me… He guided me through all of the stumbling blocks of putting together a Power of Attorney and educated me on Medicare and Medicaid. My trip to Texas was quick and efficient thanks to his guidance – if it hadn’t been for his help there would have been many wasted hours and expense. I would strongly recommend Rick and his firm to anyone in a similar set of circumstances.
