Why do you need to think about estate planning?

There are many reasons why you want to establish an effective estate plan.

  • First, an effective estate plan will help ensure the orderly distribution of your estate in accordance with your wishes.
  • An effective estate plan will also help you minimize or avoid the probate process. The probate process can be expensive and time-consuming, and can add significant responsibility for your heirs. We can advise you regarding simple ways to minimize or avoid probate. We can also help you identify whether you want to take the steps necessary to avoid probate.
  • A well-designed estate plan can reduce the tax burden on your estate. Our lawyers understand the estate tax laws and can help you implement planning techniques that minimize tax liability.

We can also help you plan for nursing home or long term medical care, including the use of Medicaid and Medicare. We can help you protect your assets from seizure by the state, ensuring that your estate goes to your family rather than to the state.
