Estate Planning is a topic that is too often avoided.
Benjamin Franklin once said nothing can be certain but death and taxes. The purpose of estate planning is to mitigate some of the financial burdens that a deceased can leave for their loved ones, and to alleviate loved ones of some of the difficult, emotional decisions that arise after death.
At the time of death, your estate is comprised of just about everything you own, including your life insurance, house, possessions, real estate, checking and savings accounts, and retirement accounts.
Knowing what you can do with your estate can be complex and daunting. We are here to help you organize the succession of your estate in the event you become incapacitated, and can provide assistance in enforcing your final requests.
We begin with an initial consultation where we will meet in person or over the phone to explain the process of estate planning, learn about your wishes, and learn about your assets.
After the initial consultation our office will collaborate with you to insure that any documents prepared meet your satisfaction. In our estate planning practice, we take pride in our clients actively participating in shaping their legacy, and seek to involve them at all stages of preparation.
We are committed to remaining responsive to your needs, and using our expertise to give our clients peace of mind that their final wishes are clearly expressed to their loved loved ones, and that those wishes are enforced.
