Estates and Real Estate

Zimmerman | Ohliger provides a full array of Estate and Real Estate services, including estate planning, estate administration, real estate closings, and landlord-tenant litigation. 

Our goal is to put our clients' minds at ease while providing superior advice and guidance on these important matters.  We encourage everyone to have at least three critical legal documents prepared (often together) in order to ensure that your wishes are carried out by your family during your lifetime and after:

A Simple Will.  This document will help ensure that your assets are handled as you wish after your passing.

A Power of Attorney.  This document will give control of your legal and financial matters to another person during your lifetime, in the event that you become incapacitated. 

A Healthcare Directive.  Otherwise known as a living will, this document will ensure that end-of-life medical care is given (or not given) in accordance with your wishes.  

If your assets are more extensive, we may recommend creation of a Living Trust, which may help to avoid certain assets being subject to probate.  

Regardless of your needs, we are here to provide peace of mind by ensuring that your wishes are thoughtfully discussed and the necessary documents are properly prepared and preserved.
