Mansfield Living Will Lawyer
Midgley Legal Services protects your present and future
interests by helping you create a personalized estate plan. We meet with clients to discuss their estate planning goals. We spend a substantial amount of time
discussing various property interests to determine what estate planning tools will best meet their needs, including living trusts, long-term care plans, and simple or complex

Durable Power of Attorney
This is a very important estate-planning document. One
of its uses is to designate a person to manage a client's affairs if they become incapable of signing legal documents or dealing with financial decisions. This may
occur because of an accident at any age, an inability to care for oneself or mental frailty due to age or poor health. A power of attorney also avoids the expense of
establishing guardianships or conservatorships. The durable power of attorney is a powerful tool used in estate planning and elder law.
The Homestead declaration is filed to protect a house
against claims of creditors. It is also considered part of our asset protection practice.
Strategic Estate Planning
Thought and care go into each client's estate plan. These
are just some of the basics of what estate planning entails. Protecting your legacy and your family is very important. Do not wait until a later age to do this. Estate
planning will assist you in the present by strategically placing certain assets out of reach of taxation or double taxation. We have spent years learning estate and tax
