What can we do for you?
A will, also called a “last will and testament”, is a legal document which specifies what you want to happen your estate– the sum total of all your possessions– in the event of your death.
Wills state who should receive your assets and who is in charge of actually distributing those assets. If you are a parent, it is also used to designate who should care for your children. A carefully considered and precisely worded will can help your heirs receive their inheritance quickly and easily, reduce your potential estate taxes, and prevent unnecessary conflict among your heirs.
There are a wide variety of trusts; you may have already heard of revocable trusts (also called living trusts) and irrevocable trusts. All share the same basic form: a trustee manages property for the benefit of a beneficiary or group of beneficiaries. We will help you understand and choose the trust that fits your situation best.
Probate is the process that occurs when a loved one passes away, to split up their estate according to their will. If no will exists, then the court will apply a “default will” that state law has determined.
An often overlooked aspect of the estate planning process, it is critical to protect your assets so you can preserve them for your beneficiaries.
