Will Creation

At Mickey Keenan, PA, we will sit down with you to understand your financial, custodial, and overall responsibilities to help you build a will that makes sure your assets move through probate as quickly as possible.

While some people think wills are involved and time-consuming to create, we can help you make one after just one appointment to review your situation. We will create the will, and then have another appointment to walk you through exactly what it states and what the terms are. Finally, we can witness the finalization of the document.

Only 44% of Americans have a will in place. Estate Planning is a critical aspect of ensuring your assets transfer to your children or loved ones as easily as possible.

Trust Creation and Titles

When you have assets you want to pass down without having to worry about the probate process, we can help you create a trust. If you’re not sure if you need a will or a trust, we’ll talk through your specific situation and make a recommendation. 

One of the aspects of trust creation is making sure that your assets – homes, businesses, and others are named appropriately so as to be controlled by the trust upon your passing. Mickey Keenen, PA can assist with that process so that not only is the trust created, the appropriate assets are placed within it.

Guardianships

As a parent, you never want to think about your child’s life without you. But should the worst happen, having guardianship documentation in place can help ease their transition and ensure your wishes are carried out.

We can help you create guardianship documentation that outlines exactly what your desires are and who you would like to take care of your children. And, we can help you update these documents should anything change before your child or children turn 18.

Our goal is to help you sleep better at night by knowing that you’ve taken care of your family as well as you can if something were to happen.

"I highly recommend David Carter and the whole team. I worked with David but I did speak with everyone in the office, including Mickey. They were all professional and knowledgeable. I knew I did not want to go with a large big named firm after calling a few and I made the right decision to go with a smaller office that would really give my case some attention. David was highly recommended and I see why. I cannot say enough good things about the experience that I had. Honest, intelligent, tough lawyers that stand by their word and truly are compassionate."

One of the most loving things you can do for your family is to do everything within your power to ease their pain should something happen to you. Creating your estate planning documents allows them to avoid long legal processes or custody disagreements, and allows them to focus on grieving - not on fighting in court.

Medical or Durable Power of Attorney

In the event you are incapacitated, a medical power of attorney provides someone of your choice the ability to make medical decisions on your behalf. Having a medical power of attorney in place makes it easier on your family and loved ones should there be an accident or injury.

A durable power of attorney allows for your designee to manage your legal and financial affairs in addition to your medical decisions.

At Mickey Keenan, PA, we can help draft, review, and witness your medical or durable power of attorney so that you have more peace of mind. We will also discuss with you any other estate planning documents you might need depending on your family and assets.
