Learn More About Estate Planning

A will is an instrument that is meant to indicate how your property is to be distributed at the time of your death. A living trust, on the other hand can avoid probate, can plan for what to do with your assets even before your death, control your property after you are gone, and prevent your finances from becoming a matter of public record. 

As you can see, an estate plan is far more powerful and flexible than a will. However, you may not even need one.

To find out for sure, speak with a good estate attorney who will know what kind of instrument is best.

Estate plans can help you avoid a large amount of estate taxes. However, the estate tax threshhold changes frequently so be sure to consult with a lawyer to see what kind of estate plan is appropriate for your unique situation.

A Power of Attorney document allows another to act on your behalf. This is most commonly used in cases where medical decisions need to be made, but your agent can also sign checks for you, transfer a title, or even sell securities. A Power of Attorney document is a powerful tool and you need to be sure to work with an experienced estate planning lawyer to get it right.
Estate planning is something best done with somebody with experience. There is a modest cost when using an attorney, but remember that your estate planning lawyer has seen dozens, if not hundreds, of estate plans and knows the right kinds of questions to ask. You will not regret taking the time and using the resources needed to get the estate plan right.

Why get an estate plan?

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Failure to create an estate plan can give rise to the need for guardianship in the event of your incapacity during life or probate after your death. Probate and guardianship are legal proceedings that are time-consuming, expensive, and, worst of all, may lead to undesired outcomes for yourself and your estate. Don't stress! We'll be with you every step of the way.

Is it expensive?

We are proud to offer our estate planning services at a very modest fee. We believe that this is important enough that even those with "standard" lifestyles should have the same tools as the wealthy.
