If you own a home, a car, or have some money in the bank, then you have an estate. But if you don't have a plan for how to distribute your estate assets when you're gone, then state laws will make those decisions for you. Don't let that happen.
Our Estate Planning Lawyers can prepare all the necessary documents (such as wills and trusts) needed to protect and distribute your assets before and after death for the beneficiaries of your choosing. In preparing your estate plan, we will consider all impactful issues (such as tax and administrative laws and regulations) and address them accordingly.
You should consider estate planning if you:
want to control who inherits your property;
care about your healthcare treatment;
wish to avoid the public proceedings of a possible guardianship or probate;
have a minor or disabled child.
Additionally, your plan may also include planning for the use of your assets for your care if you become unable to manage your affairs during your lifetime. In addition to wills and trusts, we routinely draft durable powers of attorney, health care surrogates, preneed guardians, living wills and advanced medical directives.
Acting as your estate planner, our job is to ensure that all of your needs and desires are being met. We will dedicate time and personal attention to explain the processes of preparing all these documents and what they mean to you so that you can make the most informed decisions about your estate plan.
