By establishing a durable power of attorney as part of your estate plan, you provide the legal right for a spouse, child, or someone else you trust to make financial decisions for you in the event that you become incapacitated due to illness or injury is a critical component of any estate plan.

At the Cranston law firm of Michael T Napolitano, we will help you understand your options using powers of attorney and other important estate planning tools. Establishing power of attorney is different from an advance health care directive, which gives another person the ability to make health care decisions on your behalf. Even if the person you designate is the same, you should have both documents prepared.

Lives change more rapidly than ever. If you have an existing estate plan that has not been reviewed within the last five years, it is important to make sure that your objectives are still being met. Contact us to discuss what is involved in updating your estate plan and why it is so essential.

Mr. Napolitano has helped thousands of Rhode Island families protect their assets and plan for future medical needs, including Medicaid planning, through the use of comprehensive estate plans. His extensive training and experience in the tax law allow Mr. Napolitano to make full use of trusts and other estate planning tools to protect hard-earned assets.

Your estate documents must be more than generic forms with the blanks filled in. Because every individual’s and family’s situation is unique, formulaic approaches are not the way to handle estate planning matters. We take the time to fully understand your situation before creating a customized strategy that achieves your objectives.

We frame everything in terms that you will understand. Peace of mind begins when you call 401-464-9516 or email us to discuss your estate planning needs.
