Estate Planning & Pet Trusts

Estate planning consists of the preparation of wills, trusts, and other documents with the goal of setting forth your wishes in the event of your death or incapacity.  Estate Planning is not an easy topic for most people.  Planning for your demise or incapacity is not fun, but it is an important process.  If you don’t understand it, Cannon Legal Firm is here to help create a well-thought-out estate plan that is personalized for your situation and your goals.

A Proper Estate Plan allows you to:


  • Avoid Probate on your death
  • Avoid a Conservatorship if you become incapacitated during your lifetime
  • Transfer your property in accordance with your wishes
  • Minimize exposure to estate taxes, allowing you to pass more of your property and wealth to your family
  • Address concerns of a blended family and how the estate is handled on the death of the first spouse
  • Care for a spouse, domestic partner or significant other
  • Define your wishes regarding key medical and end-of-life treatment
  • Provide for the welfare of a special needs child, an elderly parent or other beneficiaries who would benefit from a trust structured to meet their needs
  • Plan for the care of your beloved pets with a Pet Trust designed to ensure they are taken care of by the person or organization of your choice should something happen to you. Read our Blog on Pet Trusts HERE
