Estate Planning

13_Estate PlanningCreating an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Should you pass away or become incapacitated, an estate plan will save your loved ones the expense and frustration associated with the process of managing your affairs.

Elder Law Attorney will take the time to understand your unique needs and goals and help you create an estate plan to achieve those goals. Using tools such as wills, trusts, health care directives, living wills and powers of attorney, we will help you protect your interests and your legacy. We actively participate with each of our clients during the planning process to ensure that every aspect of a plan is suited to meet their needs. Because we adopt a comprehensive approach to creating an estate plan, our clients receive value beyond the peace of mind associated with having a properly structured estate plan.

Our estate planning attorneys have the knowledge and expertise needed to properly assist those with their estate planning matters and involves the following:

  • Wills & trusts
  • Living wills
  • Designations of preneed guardian
  • Health care surrogates
  • Powers of attorney
  • Special needs trusts

Providing professional services in the foregoing matters requires an understanding of and familiarity with all these areas when rendering such services to the client. Our job is to help you navigate those sometimes difficult waters and assist you to devise the most efficient estate plan to suit your needs, goals and objectives in life. An estate planners’ toolbox contains many of the tools familiar to most people, including the Last Will and Testament, Revocable Living Trusts, Durable Powers of Attorney, Health Care Surrogate Designations and Living Wills.

The primary theme of our estate planning practice is to keep our clients out of court. Our integrated estate and asset protection planning has three fundamental goals:

  • Keep legal control in the family – and avoid a court stepping into your personal financial or family affairs.
  • Protect your savings and property from lawsuits.
  • Give what you have, the way you want – at the least possible cost – saving as much as possible from taxes, court costs and attorney’s fees.

Every client is different. At Elder Law Attorney, we understand that each client comes in with a unique set of characteristics – families, wealth, special needs, and so forth.Every estate plan requires a close examination of those characteristics in order to assure that both the desires of our clients and the tax efficiencies available are maximized.

No matter the size of your estate, our lawyers can help with the planning of your future. We can help you set things up so that if you become legally incompetent before you die, your family has the information and ability to care for you without the state getting involved.
