Farrow Law advises on and prepares wills, powers of attorney, trusts, and other documents in the areas of estate and tax planning, asset protection, succession planning and related areas.
A will legally appoints a person to serve as an executor to administer your estate, and stipulates how you want your estate distributed. It sets out how beneficiaries are to receive their inheritance. In your will, you may appoint a guardian for any minor children.
A power of attorney is a legal document that appoints a person to carry out financial duties on your behalf when you are incapacitated or otherwise unable to handle your own financial affairs.
A personal care directive appoints a person to be your medical decision maker when you are incapacitated. The document lets you explain what medical interventions, if any, you would like taken on your behalf.
Give us a call to discuss the costs of producing these documents, and to learn about our full estate package for singles and couples.
We also provide advice to executors, trustees, and guardians on the administration of estates and trusts. We ensure that our clients receive the best advice possible on the protection and management of their property and belongings.
From simple cases to complex ones, we can make your estate planning easier and provide guidance to accomplish your estate goals.

Farrow Law also assists in re-organizing the structure of your business for succession planning and minimizing taxes. One of the reasons for re-structuring might be to add a family trust as a shareholder for tax purposes. If so, we can help you in the most cost effective way possible.

Nash Place was built by George W. Nash in 1940. Mr. Nash and a neighbour dug and poured the entire foundation of the building by hand. George and his wife, Cora, lived in the home from 1940 until 2009 when George, predeceased by Cora, moved into an old age facility.
George and Cora raised their family in the home and it was their family who gave Farrow Law permission to name the building after their parents. While cosmetic renovations have been done to update the building, the structure remains exactly as it was when it was built in 1940, with the original plaster walls and hardwood flooring remaining intact.
