Trust & Estate Planning Lawyer
Protecting your family when you can no longer do so is one of the most important reasons to contact a Trust & Estate Planning Lawyer.
Creating even a basic estate plan will put you in control of your finances so your loved ones will be spared the heartache, expense and frustration should you become disabled or pass away.
Estate Planning Gives You More Control
- Allows You To Control Your Property While You are Alive and Well
- Provides for Yourself and Your Loved Ones If You Become Disabled or Incapacitated
- Minimizes the Impact of Professional Fees, Court Costs and Taxes
- Allows You to Give What You Have:
- To Whom You Want
- The Way You Want
- When You Want
Estate planning documents can also limit estate taxes, discourage legal challenges from heirs, and address community/separate property concerns or issues. A well-drafted estate plan can also hold assets for children and provide for their future.
Our attorneys can also present additional opportunities, including a comprehensive Legacy Plan that would allow beneficiaries to control their inheritance while held in a Trust, but at the same time provide all the benefits that a Trust can offer.
Without proper estate planning documents in place, intestacy laws will dictate who inherits your property, and the results might not be what you intend. It is best to create an estate plan that reflects your wishes and gives you and your loved ones peace of mind.
