What is an Estate Plan?

An Estate Plan is a series of legal documents that plans for a multitude of events in the case of your incapacitation or death. A typical estate plan includes a Revocable Living Trust (to avoid probate), a Last Will and Testament (an important function of this establishes guardianship for minor children), a Living Will and Healthcare Power of Attorney, and a Durable Power of Attorney. Based on your needs, your attorney will determine what documents you should have in place.

Isn't a Will Enough?

In most cases, no. While a Will is a valuable document and typically the “foundation” of an estate plan, the Will does not ensure probate is avoided – something most individuals desire – and it does not cover your healthcare wishes.

What is the Estate Planning Process Like

During your first consultation, your attorney will assess your needs and recommend the documents you should put in place. You will then be given a questionnaire to complete that your attorney will guide you through. Once you turn the questionnaire back in, your attorney will draft your documents and you will come in for your signing. We provide all witnesses, notary, and you will receive an elegant binder to house your documents.

  • Your assets will be distributed in the manner you wish upon your passing (rather than the State making the decisions for you).
  • Those you have assigned as guardians for your minor children will be considered as first option.
  • Your medical wishes are followed and the burden of making extremely difficult end-of-life decisions will be lifted off of your loved ones.
  • Your family can avoid the emotional and financial stress of probate, receive their inheritances/gifts faster, and your assets will not be eaten away by legal fees enduring during probate.
