Estate planning is a great way to gain peace of mind in ensuring that your loved ones are taken care in the event of your death or disability. We help assist clients in a wide range of legal services that can be used to accomplish an estate plan. These services include preparing wills, trusts, and powers of attorney, as well as representation in the probate process and estate administration.
A will is a written document which you can direct an executor (personal representative), the person responsible for handling your assets, how and to whom your property should be distributed to after your death. Your executor will take an inventory of your property, pay creditors and taxes, and distribute property to your beneficiaries.
Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is a document which authorizes another individual to act as your agent to perform certain acts that you authorize that person to perform on your behalf. Those powers can include making business decisions on your behalf, the power to handle your financial affairs, or the power to make important medical decisions for you in the event that you are incapacitated.
Probate and Estate Administration
Probate is the legal process where a will is validated by the court. A person’s assets are then inventoried and distributed to beneficiaries. The executor or personal representative is the individual responsible for discovering and administering the assets of the deceased. It’s often challenging to navigate through the legal requirements of estate administration, which is why hiring an attorney experienced in these procedures is recommended.
