Estate Planning & Administration
Monaghan Safar Ducham provides personalized estate planning services, including the drafting of wills and trusts. Our approach to estate planning typically includes a comprehensive review of each client’s planning needs as well as the traditional estate planning documents. Our goal is to ensure that your estate plan is something you don’t spend time worrying about as you go about your life.
In addition to helping our clients plan for the future, we also ensure that their assets and intentions will be protected and respected by the court system.

Authorize an agent to act on your behalf in a wide range of matters that explicitly does not terminate in the event of your disability or incapacity to act for yourself.
Enhanced Life Estate Deed
