Many people are unsure if, or when, they should seek the advice of an attorney as they begin the process of Estate Planning. If you own property, have children, have recently been married or divorced, or wish to make a special bequest to a friend or relative, you should make or update your estate plan. Our estate planning lawyers will insure that your property is distributed according to your wishes.
Our experience and expertise often enable our clients to reduce or eliminate death taxes and avoid probate. By setting up a living trust, you may avoid probate. Much like a will, a living trust describes what happens to your property in the event of your death. While you are alive, you remain in control and have the power to change the trust at any time. Setting up a living trust allows you to avoid the expense and long delays of probate, and may even save you money on taxes. Talk with us to see if this might be an option available to you.
Another important reason to meet with an estate planning lawyer is to set forth your wishes and directions regarding your healthcare and finances. These documents are critical, in the event you are rendered incapacitated or unable to state your wishes. We will help you draft medical powers of attorney, living wills, and financial powers of attorney and appointment that will help your family and medical providers make important decisions if you are unable to do so.
