A Funeral Directive appoints a person or several persons to hold the power to organize your funeral and deposition of your remains. This person authorizes a memorial, says who can and cannot attend your funeral and if you are cremated or buried at sea.
In a world of second marriages and blended families, appointing a responsible, diplomatic Funeral Director can make the difference between peace in the family and years of conflict. Further, if you have specific requests around your funeral or burial, you are relying on this person to use their force of will to make these plans a reality.
We make it a practice to try and get clients to make this appointment in their Wills. This person can be a spouse or the executor, but this is not a requirement.

Peter explained things in a way that was easy to understand. Everything was done in the time frame he said it. Could not have been better!
Peter recently gave a presentation about Wills & Trusts at my employer, and it was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable and provided valuable information to the group. People were very engaged and asked several questions, all of which Peter thoroughly answered. Personally, my husband and I have selected Peter to help us with our estate planning, and he has been very helpful in providing us with all of the information we need to provide a secure future for our family. Thank you, Peter!
Peter is excellent. I had a very complicated situation with my parents' estate planning and potential Medicaid needs. Peter was very knowledgeable in estate planning matters, able to define the best solution for the situation. Additionally, he was congenial and able to communicate effectively to my senior citizen parents the benefits of estate planning. He earned my trust, and more importantly, my parents' trust in a 45 mins consultation period. Highly recommend Peter. He is very easy to work with.
Great firm. Great people. Happy to refer folks in need to estate planning to Peter and his team. They do great work.
