Our Seasoned Estate Planning Attorneys
Having an estate plan such as a will, trust, power of attorney, long-term care plan, and/or special needs plan can be one of the most thoughtful, caring things you can do for loved ones. Having a plan in place will allow those you care for to make decisions based on your wants and needs. In the case of a will or trust, your family can be given the time to grieve your loss without simultaneously being burdened by complex financial decisions, tax issues, additional fees and/or potential disagreements amongst your heirs. Taking the time to make sure that your wishes are carried out is crucial.
Will, Trusts And More
While no one wants to think about the end of his or her life, legal steps must be taken in the form of estate planning. Regardless of the size of an estate, you want to make sure that your wishes are enforced. Designating beneficiaries and determining your course of medical care should not be put in the hands of family members or a judge.
Our goal is to use the estate planning tools available (will, living trust, irrevocable trust, revocable trust, charitable trust, power of attorney, health care power of attorney, living will, etc.) to make sure you are preserving and protecting your assets during your life, as well as when you are gone. Therefore, you can avoid and/or reduce estate and inheritance taxes, and that there is a plan in place in case you become unable to manage your affairs during life and, of course, to effectively distribute your assets to your loved ones when that time comes.
