Wayzata Estate Planning Attorneys

Creating an estate plan serves a major benefit for your family. It relieves burdens that your loved ones would otherwise have to deal with at the time of your death and protects your assets. Making an effective estate plan can be done with guidance from the attorneys at Nordaune & Friesen.

We handle estate planning, probate and related matters. Our Minnesota lawyers will take time to get to know you, work directly with you through the legal process and work to achieve the most effective outcome for the situation you are facing.

An estate plan protects the interests of your loved ones and will help to eliminate conflict and challenges that might otherwise come up if someone dies without a will or good estate plan in place. At Nordaune & Friesen, we can help you draft a will, designate heirs to your estate, draft powers of attorney appointing agents to make decisions about health care and financial matters in the event of incapacity, or to establish a trust when appropriate.

Understanding Your Family, The Dynamics Of The Situation And Your Goals

We take a thorough approach to gathering information about our clients — right from the start. We ask for detailed information about what is important to you, your family dynamics, areas of conflict and concern, and the goals you wish to achieve.

When you work with our team you will be asked specific questions and asked about your goals for your particular situation. We want to know the details of your situation, including your financial holdings, your family dynamics and any conflicts that may be present. Taking this approach helps us to directly tailor our legal services to meet your estate planning or probate needs.
