Welcome to Unique Estate Law. The firm that works to protect you and your family from an uncertain future. Every family needs certain basic legal documents such as wills, health care directives and powers of attorney. If you do not have these documents, you are giving the State of Minnesota the power to make your most personal and important decisions on your behalf – without your input. Don’t let the State decide who will be the guardian of your children, who will make medical decisions for you should you become incapacitated or who will inherit your assets upon your death.
But basic documents are often not enough. I will work with you to custom design and draft a holistic plan tailored to your unique needs. For example, a revocable living trust is an effective tool for many families particularly if you’re not legally married in the state of Minnesota or have minor children. If your family assets total more than $1 million, which can be more likely than you imagine, I will explain the possible tax implications of passing those assets to your beneficiaries. Further, I will create a custom plan to save your family from paying unnecessary fees or taxes.
Other powerful estate planning options include business succession plans, special needs trusts and cabin succession planning. After drafting hundreds of custom-designed plans, I have the knowledge and experience to help walk you through the process.
Each situation is different, whether you have a blended family, multi-generational household or own a small business, you must take extra precautions to create and safeguard the future of both you and your family against incapacity or death.
As someone who grew up in a blended family and as a parent who adopted my daughter through second-parent adoption, I have a particular passion for helping all types of families protect themselves and their loved ones. And as a board member of a medium-sized family-owned business, I understand how important it is to protect what you've spent time and care building. That's why I work with small-business owners to assist in making informed decisions regarding the growth and transition of their business.
It it is my mission to help you navigate all transitions in your life smoothly whether they involve the joys of starting a new relationship, adding to your family or protecting the family that you have or to guide you through the legal issues related to a death in your family. Whether you have traditional or non-traditional estate planning needs, let Unique Estate Law put the important decisions back into your hands by assisting with the following:
