A person who has served in any branch of the United States military has specific benefits that should be considered when developing an estate plan. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers medical care, pensions, and other benefits that must be carefully assessed and integrated into a veteran’s overall estate plan.

The firm’s experienced estate planning lawyers understand the unique issues that affect veterans and their families, working closely with each client to create a fully customized plan that addresses his or her needs and goals.
