ESTATE PLANNING & ADMINISTRATION

Too often people think that they don’t need a will because they don’t own their own home, or their bank account is too small.  Others believe that a power of attorney is a simple form that can be purchased on the internet.  Curcio and Curcio know that no matter how large or small your assets may be, you need to have documents in place that protect your property as you age and transfer your assets smoothly and accurately upon your death.

Curcio and Curcio can help guide you in determining an estate plan that is right for you.  We will assist you in preparing wills and trusts that not only call for an uncomplicated transfer upon your death, but also eliminate or reduce the complexities of the probate process.

It is equally important to give consideration to selecting the right person to care for your financial and health care needs in the event that you are unable to make decisions for yourself.  Well-crafted Durable Powers of Attorney and Advanced Medical Directives can help your loved ones look out for you at a time that you may not be able to care for yourself.
