Trusts & Estates Law

Be prepared and provide assurance to those who follow in your footsteps.

Aiken is a firm grounded in its dedication to serving others.  An “estate plan” can include a will, trust, health care directive and power of attorney for health care and for financial matters.  Estate plans are like insurance – something we don’t plan to ever use – but providing peace of mind that your affairs are in order and your loved ones are cared for in the unlikely event of unexpected incapacity, disability, disease or death.  The attorneys at Aiken, St. Louis & Siljeg, are focused on providing you with individualized plans that meet your personal needs.  If you have any questions about your current estate plans or you think you need a will or a trust, please reach our to any of our estate planning attorneys at 206.624.2650.  Our goal is to listen to you and to help you create a plan that meets your needs and desires.

Do you have minor children?

If you have minor children, a will and durable power of attorney is so important to ensure that your minor children are cared for by the person(s) that you choose in the event of your death or incapacity. 

In a committed relationship?

If you have not gotten married or registered your domestic partner for personal reasons but would like to ensure that someone you love is provided for, there is no better way than to include that person in your will and trust.  If left to the laws of intestacy, your unmarried partner (or non registered domestic partner) will not receive any portion of your estate.
