Importance of Estate Planning

Estate Planning is a process of preparing for the unforeseen in life. Without even realizing it, you have likely engaged in the Estate Planning process most of your adult life – for example, taking out a life insurance policy, naming beneficiaries on your retirement plan, or when you are strategizing on how to preserve family heirlooms. By working with an experienced attorney, a Comprehensive Estate Plan will include nominations of guardians for any minor children, document your wishes in the event of your own incapacity, and help preserve your assets from creditors. Our Estate Plans include important legacy planning documents such as the Living Will, The Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney, and advanced directives.
