Meet with one of our Anoka estate planning attorneys to discuss which estate planning option is best to meet your needs.

Some common estate planning options include:


A will is a legal document recording how you would like your assets distributed in the event of your death. While writing a will can seem like a daunting or even morbid task, the fact of the matter is that when someone dies without a will (or intestate, as the law calls it) your assets are distributed according to a formula fixed by the law. If you are a business owner and would like to create a plan for your business to be handed down to your family after your death, a will is essential. Our estate planning lawyers can assist you in drafting a will that carries out your wishes.


The fundamental difference between a trust and a will is that assets in a trust will not have to go through probate when you die. Creating a trust transfers your assets while you are still alive, so while you still have access to the assets, you no longer technically own them. The trust is then instructed on how to distribute the assets upon your death. To fully understand the tax implications and options of how to set up a trust that best fits your unique situation, call the Anoka estate planning lawyers at Randall, Goodrich & Haag, P.L.C. today.

Healthcare Directives

Healthcare directives, which are also known as living wills, specify what actions should be taken in the case that you are no longer able to express your wishes due to illness or incapacity. They may give specific instructions, or simply authorize a power of attorney or health care proxy, where another individual is appointed as the person who will make decisions on your behalf.

The estate planning lawyers at Randall, Goodrich & Haag, P.L.C. are experienced in these, and many other areas of estate planning law. If you have questions about how we can help, do not hesitate to call and schedule a meeting where the Anoka estate planning lawyers at Randall, Goodrich & Haag, P.L.C. can review your situation without cost or obligation.
