Plan for Life
Building legal strategies for your quality of life
Estate Planning and Probate
Creating an estate plan for yourself and your family will save your loved ones undue stress after you are gone. An estate plan also helps ensure that your wishes are carried out. Your estate plan may include a will, trusts, powers of attorney, and a health care proxy. Once you have created your estate plan, you should review it every few years or when a major life event occurs. Knowing you have the right estate plan in place can give you and your loved ones peace of mind and free up your time to focus on the things you enjoy. At Mary Keating Esq LLC, we strive to give you the personalized attention you need for this important legal process. To learn more about estate planning, click the Read More button

Our firm believes that mediation is a better way to get divorced than litigation. While mediation may not be for everyone, we suggest you try a session to explore if it is right for you. Because mediation is voluntary, it can be less stressful than the adversarial divorce process. Many couples lose sight of what is important when they are in litigation, and can spend an inordinate amount on attorneys' fees only to end up with a separation agreement that is similar to what mediation would have yielded. Mediation allows divorcing couples to create their own separation agreement with the guidance of a trained mediator. In addition, we will assist you with formalizing your separation agreement, explain the divorce process, and help you file the necessary court forms. If you are interested in learning more about using mediation as an alternative to the traditional divorce process, please give us a call today.
