What is estate law?

Estate law is a legal term used to describe an area of the law focused on the distribution of someone’s assets and possessions in the future. Often, estate law involves what happens to someone’s financial assets after their death or if they sustain an injury that leaves them incapacitated.

Estate law can help you accomplish certain goals, including:

  • Clearly stating who inherits your assets after your death
  • Outlining in detail how to care for you if you become permanently disabled
  • Designating your power of attorney (someone who acts on your behalf) in case you become incapacitated
  • Naming a legal guardian for your children
  • Transferring your assets to others during your lifetime in order to reduce your tax burden

These are just some of the goals you can accomplish through careful estate planning. That’s why it’s critical that you consult with an experienced South Carolina estate planning attorney who knows the law and can help you achieve the future you want for your family and other beneficiaries.

What are different types of estate planning?

Estate planning can cover a wide range, but some of the most common – and most important – types of estate planning documents we often help people create involve:

  • Last Will and Testament
  • Probate
  • Power of Attorney
  • Living Wills
  • Trusts

Whatever type of estate planning issue you want to address, you can count on our experienced estate planning attorneys to create a document that adheres to all the applicable state and federal regulations. That way, your wishes will be carried out in the future according to your precise instructions.

Why should I hire a estate law attorney?

There’s no room for error when it comes to estate planning. If mistakes are made, your loved ones and other beneficiaries might not receive the assets you want them to have. Instead, your last will and testament or another similar document could become the focus of an intense legal battle. Our goal is to create legally binding documents for you and your family that can withstand future legal challenges.

You have worked hard your whole life. Make sure you have an estate planning attorney who will work just as hard for you. Contact Benjamin R.
