Providing For Your Loved Ones And Your Own Care

An estate plan is a set of legal actions and documents for preserving wealth and passing it to your heirs and for declaring your wishes in the event of death or incapacity. When properly drafted these protections are well worth the investment of time and money. Improperly drafted directives can lead to unnecessary costs, delay, disputes and public exposure for your family members.

Sheridan & Dulas, P.A., provides counsel in estate planning and elder law. We customize a plan to your needs, whether you need a basic will and powers of attorney, or whether you need advanced tools for asset protection, estate tax avoidance and wealth succession.
