An Estate Plan is something everyone needs, but most seldom have. It is difficult for people to create an estate plan because it is human nature to not want to deal with the thought of death or disability. The peace of mind and security you and your loved ones gain from having your personal affairs in order is certainly worth the investment. Planning ahead will allow you to take advantage of many available estate planning tools that can facilitate the smooth succession of your property and help you avoid certain time-consuming probate procedures. We work closely with other necessary professionals, such as, accountants, insurance agents and financial planners to provide the best counsel and solution for our clients.
Planning ahead will minimize the chances of disputes arising between loved ones. For example, who will make your medical decisions if you become disabled and can no longer make them for yourself? Who will care for your children if you become incapacitated or unexpectedly pass away? Who will be responsible to pay your mortgage, credit card bills and other liabilities? Do you want the same person who manages your property to make your medical decisions? These are all issues that should be resolved in a plan that will reflect your wishes.
