COMPASSIONATE. CAREFUL. CLEAR.
Leaving a Legacy of Love.
Estate Planning — You can’t take it with you when you die.
Dying is a “when”, not an “if”. So the inevitable awaits and those you leave behind deserve that these matters get handled with care.
You have an estate no matter who you are.
An estate is all of your assets, accounts and personal property. It doesn’t matter how large the estate is, we all have to ensure that these precious life-acquired belongings are handled with care and precision. So it isn’t just for the filthy rich. Actually, it is even more important for those whose assets are modest and can’t afford to see any go to waste.
Someone is going to get your life’s work.
Estate planning is the process of deciding “Who, What & When”. Our attorneys can help you to do this in the smoothest and most cost-effective way possible. We help you prepare all the necessary documents and give you the guidance you need.
You might be thinking, “It is too expensive to hire an attorney”. If so, consider that estate planning is about preserving the value of what you already possess. Also, you will want to save as much as you can in taxes, fees and court costs, right?. We can help you to do this.
What if you decide not to plan? Well guess what? The State already has a plan and will execute it regardless. If you die without an estate plan, your assets will be distributed according to certain probate laws. In some cases, the division of your assets are distributed in such a way that your family may not have enough to live on; or have difficulty accessing. Your children will not receive anything as long as they are minors.
In the event that no plan is in place, the court will handle your estate and it will be public. Who wants their affairs handled in open court? Wouldn’t it be much better to have these things handled by your family in private?
Most of all you need peace of mind. Peace, knowing that your affairs and the future of the loved ones you leave behind has been secured. Peace, knowing that the legacy you leave isn’t just possessions, but an unselfish example and a living memorial that is priceless.
