Helping To Preserve You Worked Hard To Achieve

Having a well-designed, comprehensive estate plan may be the greatest gift you could ever leave for your family members. In addition to making your wishes known with regard to how you want your property distributed after your death, an estate plan can also provide clear instructions that eliminate much of the uncertainty and infighting that often happens among family members after the death of a loved one.

At the law firm of Grannis & Hauge, P.A., our Minnesota estate planning lawyers provide complete estate planning services to clients throughout Dakota County and the surrounding area. We work with you to fully understand your estate planning goals and recommend a customized solution designed specifically to help you reach them.

Assisting Clients With A Wide Variety Of Estate Planning Issues

Every person's estate planning needs are unique, and we know that there is no single solution that accommodates every situation. We have developed plans for people wishing to shelter beneficiaries from estate taxes, to sell a privately held business, to ensure that minor children are cared for in the event of both parents' deaths and many other considerations. We take the time to explain your options as well as the benefits and drawbacks associated with each one.

Our estate planning attorneys are Ward R. Anderson, Virginia A. Dwyer, David G. Keller and Barry Wittenkeller. We can help you with all types of estate planning issues, including the following:

  • Drafting of wills
  • Setting up trusts, including revocable or "living" trusts
  • Assisting with transfers of clients' property into a trust, an often overlooked step
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advance health care directives and living wills
  • Assisting with will substitutes such as transfer on death deeds and proper identification of beneficiaries for life insurance and retirement accounts
