Why consider Estate Planning? Planning for the inevitable is among the greatest services you can do for your survivors. Not only does it involve addressing future incapacity, end of life issues and succession of an individual’s estate, it also goes beyond the legal requirements of the family. An attorney can become a sounding board for personal and charitable decisions, an objective ear to resolve family conflicts and a messenger of critical communications.
Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney and Physician’s Directives are fundamental parts of the estate planning process. No matter the size of our estate, these issues need to be addressed so that the individual and his or her estate is handled in a manner acceptable to the client. Failing to plan typically leads to additional cost and burden to the individual’s loved ones.
