Hogue Hill Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning Practice Group
Our Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning Group provides services for the planning for the management and disposition of assets during lifetime and at death, and for health care planning, including planning for end of life (withholding of health care to assure a natural death for those to whom avoidance of prolongation of life after enjoyment of life has ended is important). Issues of guardianship of children, protection of assets for the benefit of descendants and other family, charitable giving, and organ donation and disposition of remains, can be addressed if desired.
