A short clip of a woman sitting side-ways in a small, wooden boat that is sailing on still waters through a majestic canyon. As the boat comes around a wall of the canyon covered in trees, the sun shines on the woman in the boat and the scene opens up to show even more faces of the canyon covered in plants and trees.
Indiana Elder Law and Estate Planning Attorneys
Plans, Powers of Attorney and Other Documents
What are you trying to accomplish?
One of the reasons the phrase “estate planning” confuses people is that it’s a broad term encompassing legal, financial, accounting, healthcare and other planning. There are hundreds of combinations of documents that may make up a person’s legal estate plan. To add to confusion, the planning that you need is probably different than the planning needs of other family members, friends or neighbors.
It is helpful to understand what documents do.
Use the resources here to familiarize yourself with some of the various types of documents. Then schedule an initial free consultation so we can visit about what you want to accomplish and work together with you to design an estate plan that is uniquely yours.

Review Your Plans
Has it been a while since you reviewed your Will, Estate Plan or Powers of Attorney? Maybe you created a Will or an Estate Plan when you started your family, or when your family and assets looked differently than they do now. Over the years your life changes and so does Estate Planning. New techniques may be available now that were not available when you did your Will or Estate Plan. Now is a good time to dust-off your documents and review your current needs. Submit a “Request to Meet” or call our office at (219) 240-0450 to schedule a no-obligation review appointment.
