Planning & Administration

Estate Planning

Estate planning is a very personal experience that requires time and attention. At the McHugh Law Firm, the estate planning process begins with a comparatively lengthy first meeting where we begin to understand your life and the people that are important to you. When the estate plan is completed, our goal is for you to have a clear estate plan in place that meets your individual needs. As part of basic estate planning, the following documents are generally recommended:

  1. Last Will and Testament;
  2. Health Care Power of Attorney;
  3. Natural Death Act Declaration;
  4. Durable General Power of Attorney; and,
  5. Statutory Burial Designation.

In addition, in appropriate cases, we may recommend the formation of a trust to help the client accomplish specified planning objectives.

Estate Administration

While it is the policy of the firm to help clients identify individuals or other professionals already working with the Client who can administer their estate, when requested by clients, The McHugh Law Firm is available to administer or assist in the administration of estates and/or trusts.
