Estate Planning in Rhode Island
Having a will can be an important factor in ensuring your family is left with answers to their questions after you pass on. While will’s may dictate who your children will live with or who will control your finances, many people opt for the more comprehensive estate plan. An estate plan is often more precise and robust than a will and can include a living will, beneficiary designations, and the appointment of a financial power of attorney.
A living will can be a helpful document in the event of an accident that requires your family to make difficult medical decisions about your health. This may include end of life care, the use of extraordinary measures, and more. Whatever the size of your estate, estate planning can help your family after you pass on as most of the decisions they would have to make have already been made by you.
Planning & Drafting Estate Documents
At Audette, Audette & Violette, we devote a significant portion of our practice to wills, trusts, and estate planning. Estate planning is the process of preparing and arranging for the disposal of your assets when you pass on. The objective of an effective estate plan is to eliminate uncertainties over the distribution of your assets and maximize the value of your estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. Our lawyers have extensive knowledge of estate planning and administration laws in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
We are fully equipped to draft any document you may need to ensure that you have a complete estate plan, including:
- Powers of Attorney
- Living Wills
In estate planning matters, our fee is based on the work we do, not by the size of your estate. You will not be penalized or “upcharged” for having more or less to protect than someone else. We only recommend the documents you need – no more, no less.

We take great care to simplify the process for you, while satisfying all the wishes of your loved one.
