Why Do I Need an Estate Planning Attorney?

An estate plan is essential for every adult individual. Estate planning provides many benefits, including security, asset protection, minimizing estate taxes and helping to avoid probate just to name a few. While there are “do-it-yourself” estate planning kits out there and online programs, it is better to have an experienced attorney carefully create a comprehensive estate plan for you and your family that meets your needs not just today but also in the future if anything should change. Having an attorney who already knows what your goals are and who can amend your will, trust or advance directive at any time gives you flexibility and peace of mind in knowing that your estate is handled personally and professionally.

Our Estate Planning Practice

Wills and trusts are just a few of the estate planning “tools” that can be used to help secure your future and your family’s future. Taking action ahead of time is key to reaching the goal of having peace of mind, knowing that your estate will be carried out in the manner you desire.

Documents referred to as “advance directives” are important for every person because they deal with difficult issues involving life, death and incapacity.

Advance directives include:

  • Appointment of health care representative
  • Durable power of attorney
  • Living will declaration

Estate planning documents:

  • Last will and testament
  • Revocable “living” trust
