What is estate planning?
Many people think estate planning only deals with the distribution of someone's financial assets after their death. But an effective estate plan can accomplish many other goals. These include:
- Designating your power of attorney in case you become incapacitated
- Creating instructions involving your care in case you become disabled
- Transferring assets to loved ones during your lifetime with minimal financial impact
- Naming a guardian for children or other underage family members
Estate planning can be complicated. But it doesn't have to be confusing. Our estate planning attorneys can explain the financial tools and legal options at your disposal. We can then help you implement your plan and work with you if any problems should arise.
