Estate Planning Attorneys
An estate plan is a blueprint you create to control how your assets should be managed, used and passed on in the event of your incapacity or death, and how decisions should be made about your care and treatment if you become incapacitated.
While this is accomplished through a set of documents, it is crucial to keep in mind that estate planning is not about the documents themselves. It is about making a series of informed decisions and taking a series of thoughtful actions, all of which are designed to ensure that in the event of your death or disability, things will transition in the way you would have hoped, with the least disruption possible and with minimal or no intrusion by the court
Estate planning should be tailored to each client’s specific situation. Several factors go into preparing an estate plan that will best accomplish the client’s goals and objectives. What works for one client may not work for another. Customization is important.
Who needs an estate plan?
Some people do not think they need an estate plan. The problem is, if you do not take control of your estate planning, the government takes care of it for you by determining what happens to your assets during a period of incapacity and at death. Others believe an estate plan is something that can be bottled up and sold on the internet. This could not be further from the truth. Relying on a one-size-fits-all estate plan or a form you can buy on the internet will more than likely result in a visit to an attorney’s office that will be significantly more expensive than if properly addressed from the outset.
Our practice focuses on listening to the client’s goals and objectives, treating them with respect, and offering alternatives which are specifically tailored to meet and surpass those goals and objectives. We incorporate wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and other advanced planning techniques as part of the estate plan.
