Estate planning is a critical component and often overlooked piece of the practice of family law. One of the greatest gifts you can give your loved ones is to be proactive and put into place an estate plan. Having a plan in place alleviates a great deal of emotional and financial stress on your family at the time of your incapacity or passing.
An estate plan is a set of directives and wishes intended to protect you, your family and your legacy, in the event of your incapacity or passing.
Every estate plan is unique, as where you are in your life will impact what estate plan best achieves your goals. When we meet with you, we will discuss your family, your assets and liabilities, any concerns you may have, and what your goals are for your family. After learning about your family and your goals, we will discuss your options and implement an estate plan that fits your needs.
We understand discussing your estate plan can be overwhelming. We pride ourselves on taking the time to ensure you fully understand what your estate plan entails and what steps you need to take after your estate planning documents are signed to fully carryout your plan.
