Why You Need an Estate Planning Lawyer
At some point in our lives, we all may need the knowledgeable services of an estate planning attorney. Sometimes people will work with a lawyer on behalf of a loved one who is unable to communicate their desires or manage their own finances. Some families create trusts for their children in order to ensure their future is in good hands.
Our firm offers an extensive variety of estate planning tools, such as:
- Wills – A legal document which specifies how a person’s assets and property are to be transferred and managed after death.
- Living wills – A legal document that outlines medical and end-of-life preferences in the event you cannot communicate your wishes.
- Trusts – A legal arrangement in which one party possesses legal title to someone else’s property. The trust details how assets to be transferred or used during life.
- Durable powers of attorney – Appointing a trusted individual to manage personal and business affairs.
- Health care directives – Authorizing an individual to make medical decisions on your behalf in the event you are incapacitated.
Probate refers to the legal process of administering and distributing the probate assets to the beneficiaries and heirs of a deceased individual. This process is often smoother when the deceased person has drafted a will prior to his/her death. A probate lawyer can be named as the executor of the estate or offer legal guidance to the executor named in the will to help carry out the decedent’s wishes. By contrast, if you wish to challenge the will or are unhappy with the way the executor or the current lawyer is handling probate, an experienced probate litigator can help.
