What we Do
At Bourget Law Group, our primary goal is to help our clients structure an estate such that their final wishes can be carried out with a minimum of stress. To do so, we offer a comprehensive and sophisticated breadth of estate planning services that can help clients avoid the expense and hassle of a lengthy probate process and better deliver their estate planning objectives.
Bourget Law Group’s elder law attorneys work with the aging client and their families to determine who should be making important decisions for the client and assist them with the execution of Advance Directives, such as Durable Powers of Attorney and Health Care Proxies, or advise them on guardianships and conservatorships as appropriate for the individual situation.
Special Needs Planning
Bourget Law Group strives to make a difference in the lives of people with all types of disabilities, including behavioral, physical, intellectual, developmental or those brought on by abuse of certain substances.
The Probate Court in Massachusetts is the Court that makes certain determinations concerning the affairs of a deceased individual or individuals who are incapable of managing their own affairs or finances.
Estate and Trust Administration is the process by which an individual’s assets are held by either a trust or an estate and are legally and efficiently managed and distributed during life (inter vivos) or at death (testamentary).
We advise all our competent clients to consider signing advanced directives, including a Durable Power of Attorney and Health Care Proxy. These documents permit an individual to appoint a trusted person to make business, financial or health care decisions if the individual is unable to make those decisions or act on their own behalf.
