Effective estate planning will often times allow us to help our clients to reduce or eliminate death taxes and avoid probate. A living trust, will often times help people avoid probate. Similar to a will, a living trust spells out what happens to your property in the event of your death. While you are alive, you still remain in control and have the option to change the trust at any time. A living trust allows you to avoid the expense and long delays of probate, and may even save you money on taxes. Contact us so that we can discuss what the right option is for you.
An estate planning lawyer can help you create a legal document to ensure that your wishes are followed in regards to your healthcare and finances. These documents are important to have in place in the event you are rendered unconscious or otherwise unable to state or communicate your wishes. Our lawyers can help you draft a power of attorney that will help your family and medical providers make important decisions if you are unable to do so.
In all of our estate planning work, our primary goal is to keep the peace in your family and make sure your wishes are carried out.
