Minneapolis Family/Estate Planning For Same-Sex Couples

AuntSame-sex couples, like any other couple, need to protect their family and the future of their assets. And although same-sex marriage is legal in Minnesota as of August 1, 2013, there is still a high degree of uncertainty regarding estate planning due to conflicting statutes. As such, it is vital to have the advice and guidance of an experienced lawyer.

For more than 30 years, Jonathan Burris and the Burris Law Offices, PLLC, have been representing clients in a range of estate planning matters. Mr. Burris is a skilled Minnesota attorney for gay family estate planning, providing advice and guidance for matters pertaining to:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Living wills or health care directives
  • Living trusts
  • Durable powers of attorney
