As part of the firm’s Estate Planning and Administration practice area, Marci works with individuals and families to create and implement estate plans that address clients’ specific needs and goals, incorporating the use of wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advanced healthcare directives, and other planning techniques in case of incapacity.
