What Exactly is Estate Planning? Do I really need it?

A plan that provides your loved ones with a framework to deal with life’s contingencies and seasons. We specialize in creating documents which are simple to follow and require the least involvement of lawyers and courts in dealing with life events. For example, here are some of the questions your estate plan will answer for your loved ones:

  • How do you want your medical treatment handled should you become incapacitated?
  • What happens to your financial estate should be become incapacitated?
  • Who are your preferred guardians of your minor children should you pass?
  • What happens to your financial estate after you die?
  • We will help you create an estate plan that will answer these questions.

This is an important gift you can provide for those who care about you.

TRUSTS

This legal instrument is the cornerstone of most of the estate plans we design for our clients.  Our team will help you navigate the complexities of trust creation, ensuring your assets are protected and your loved ones are taken care of.

WILLS

With our expertise in will drafting, we will guide you through successful strategies and create simple and effective estate planning documents tailored to your specific needs.

PROBATE

What exactly is probate? It entails legally administering the estate of a deceased individual, addressing any outstanding debts, and distributing assets to their rightful beneficiaries.

POWERS OF ATTORNEY & LIVING WILLS/HEALTH CARE DIRECTIVES

Powers of attorney for Health Care and Financial Estates are very important should you or your spouse become incapacitated. Living Wills and Advance Health Care Directives tell your loved ones and your medical providers how you want them to provide medical care for you in difficult situations.

Make Sure Your Attorney Understands What’s at Stake for Your Family

After each important life event, such as moving to a new location, marriage, divorce, birth of a child or death of a loved one, it is important to revisit your estate planning needs and have your estate planning instruments reviewed.  We generally recommend at least every 3-5 years as a matter of course.
