Through the use of Last Wills and Testaments, Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts, Financial Powers of Attorney, Health Care Powers of Attorney, and Living Wills, as well as more advanced estate planning techniques, Ms. Dwyer-Heidkamp provides each of her clients with a comprehensive – and client-specific – estate plan. Ms. Dwyer-Heidkamp recognizes that every client is unique, and believes that every Estate Plan should reflect that fact.
