What is Estate Planning?
An “estate” is the legal term for the collection of property you own. Estate planning is choosing what will happen to your assets and valuables after death and ensuring that your choices are documented in a legally recognized manner. Estate planning involves addressing numerous scenarios and issues by using a range of strategic legal documents. However, to accomplish this, you must consult with an experienced elder law attorney before developing and implementing an estate plan to ensure that your plan sets out your wishes while using the best legal strategy for the protection of your assets.
How to Develop a Strategic Estate Plan
The goal of estate planning is typically straight forward: (1) to receive maximum enjoyment of your assets during your lifetime; (2) to provide for management of your assets and medical decisions in the event of your incapacity; and (3) to establish how your assets are handled after your death with minimum taxation, court involvement, and family conflict. Just as you and your family are unique, no two estate plans are the same. Depending on your goals, family considerations, assets, and taxation concerns, our team of experienced elder law attorneys will collaborate with you to create an individualized estate plan using the best legal strategy for your unique family. We take the time to listen to you and to develop the best plan for you and your family.
