Learn More About The Services Our Estate Planning And Family Law Firm Offers

When considering estate planning there are many factors that are important. The guidance of a good law firm experienced in these matters is imperative to getting the outcome you seek.

Most people do not like to think about their own death or becoming incapacitated due to injury or illness, but it is necessary to do so to protect your family along with any personal or business assets.

If you delay doing so until it is too late, it can lead to a substantial loss of those assets and leave your family vulnerable at a time that is most difficult for them. Such losses can come from unnecessary taxes being levied, medical bills or the cost of nursing care that dwindles even a decent savings to nothing.

If you become incapacitated from an illness or injury and you do not have a designated power of attorney established, it could be costly and time consuming for your family to fight the courts to establish one. In the interim, someone not of your choosing may be making important decisions regarding your care.

If you have a member of your family who is in need of special care, you should have a legal plan in place to ensure their care after your passing or incapacitation. Even pets that are considered part of the family can be protected with the right legal planning.

If you have a pet who is an extension of your family, you can designate a guardian for the pet, any instructions for it’s care and even designate a trust to cover cost of caring for the pet you love.

Here Is A Further Explanation Of Some Of Our Services:

Legacy Planning

If you have more than just assets you want protected as part of your legacy we can help. Protecting things such as your name, heirlooms, life stories or other less traditional provisions can be protected inside of Wills and Living Trust.

Elder Services

As we age, it is common to need regular medical treatment and even 24-hour care inside a nursing care facility. But these things can completely erode even a substantial estate. If you get the right planning and legal arrangements in place before hand, you can protect a substantial amount of your estate from these cost.

Family Owned Businesses

There are many special considerations needed when protecting a family owned business. If you become incapacitated and unable to make decisions, a legal strategy can be in place that not only designates Power of Attorney, but also supplies specific instructions of how you want things done.

Probate And Trust Administration

If your family does find itself in probate we can help the process go as smoothly as possible with the best possible outcome under the specific situation.

Additional assistance is available for designatiosn to beneficiaries, deeds, tax planning, health care directives, gift tax planning, contested and uncontested issues, contest of wills, and even business succession.

The sooner you put a strategic legal strategy in place the sooner you can relax knowing things will be carried out the way you want.
