Estate Planning

Estate Planning

Protecting your property and family, now and into the future.

When planning for the future it is important to have a qualified and experienced team of attorneys on your side. Estate planning is much more than simply drafting documents. It should be a process including answering your questions, guiding you through the process, and designing an estate plan that matches your specific situation and desires.

Will based estate plan

The most common estate plan starts with the foundation of a Last Will and Testament. This document is essential for a simple estate plan to make sure your property is left to whom you want after your death. Preparing a will with an experienced and qualified estate planning attorney can help you design a plan that meets your desires specifically. Without a properly drafted will your estate and property may pass under the intestate rules of the state. This may not meet your desires or be the best plan for your family.

Trust base estate plan

In many situation a trust based estate plan will better serve your wishes. Trust based estate plans help you not only decide how your property will be distributed upon your passing, but will help you control your estate and property during your lifetime and in the event of disability or incapacity. A trust based estate plan can also help you to avoid probate on a majority of your estate thus reducing the costs of administering the estate and keeping your estate private.

Disability planning

While many estate plans are focused on your property when you pass, you should also plan for the event of disability or incapacity. Unfortunately, many people become disabled or incapacitated without a plan. This leaves the family without the ability to manage finances, without the ability to make health care decisions and without solid instructions on what you would like in the event of your disability. Thus it is very important to include in your total estate plan additional documents such as Durable Powers of Attorney for Finances, Health Care Agent determinations, and health care directive or living wills. This will not only ensure that your wishes are carried out if you become disabled, but will be a precious gift to you family, allowing them to know they are fulfilling your wishes and desires for your care and treatment.
