Estate Planning

Thinking about the future and making decisions about asset protection, asset distribution and health care directives can present many overwhelming and sometimes adversarial conversations. As you navigate this complexity of different "what if" scenarios, make sure to consider what you need to get things done right and protect your best interests both in life and after you have passed away.

My law firm, Jeffrey P. White and Associates, P.C., works to calm contentious issues and provide clear information for calculated, effective and lasting decisions in estate planning.

My clients are typically concerned about leaving something for their children and thoroughly protecting their health care and finances should anything happen to them. It is your money and your life, and I am here to help you get the information you need to protect them. I offer straightforward counsel in a wide range of estate planning issues, including:

I also work hard to dispel many of the estate planning myths that result in less favorable decisions for my clients. As a result, the use of trusts as a more flexible and portable way to address long-term life and after-death concerns is a large part of my practice.

When you work with my office, I will never force you into decisions you feel uncomfortable with. As your lawyer, my goal will be to give you clear guidance about your options, help you weigh the advantages and disadvantages of each option, and effectively guide you through the process.

I offer free initial consultations and reasonable fees in estate planning for clients throughout Maine. Contact my office in the Lewiston-Auburn area online or by telephone at 207-689-2111 (toll free at 888-351-8426) to arrange an appointment.
