Most people tend to procrastinate when it comes to estate planning. Let’s face it, deciding who gets your assets when you are gone, and who will manage your assets if you become disabled, are tasks most people would rather ignore. But if you’re reading this, you’re probably ready to take that first step toward greater peace of mind.
Why is estate planning important?
Addressing any future concerns you may have about your family’s needs can help give you peace of mind and ensure that there is no confusion regarding your wishes. Having experienced legal representation in your corner is essential to having your final requests carried out in the way that you see fit.
Our customized documents reflect your final wishes
Any number of companies can offer you a blank form that purports to meet all of your estate’s needs. However, these types of forms cannot possibly account for all contingencies and are not tailored to fit your unique situation. We are here to help answer all of your questions and help you craft the plan that you want. Whether you desire a simple will or need help with more complex plans, you can rely on us to draft legally sound documents that will carry out your final wishes.
We can help prepare all of your estate planning documents
We can help guide you through this process, ensuring that your documents reflect your goals and help meet your family’s future needs. We can help prepare all types of documents to fit the estate plan that you desire, including:
- Wills: A Will provides written instructions as to how you want your estate to be distributed, who you want to handle the probate process and, if you have minor children, who you want to raise those children, and who you want to be in control of the money for those children.
- Trusts: Trusts contain assets that may be quickly distributed according to the terms of the trust, without the delay, fees, and public exposure of probate.
- Powers of attorney: A power of attorney authorizes someone to act on your behalf and sign your name to financial and/or legal documents.
- Health care directives/living wills: A health care directive authorizes another person to make decisions with respect to your medical care in the event that you are physically or mentally unable to do so.
