Craft the Legacy You Want to Leave for Your Loved Ones With an Estate Plan
Everyone should have an estate plan in order to protect the hard-won assets that should be left to their loved ones after their death, but there are many additional purposes and benefits of estate planning. An estate plan ensures that your wishes are carried out in a way that honors the life you’ve built for yourself and the legacy you intend to leave for your family. A well-crafted estate plan can help avoid the need for probate court, a long and costly legal process that does not guarantee your assets will be distributed according to your wishes. Probate proceedings add nothing but stress to the grief that the family and friends of the deceased person are already feeling.

With the assistance of an experienced estate planning attorney, clients can also protect assets from creditors, ensure that minor children are cared and provided for in the absence of their parents, avoid or minimize unnecessary estate taxes (called “death taxes”), protect a spendthrift heir… and the list goes on. Furthermore, if you have a loved one who is incapacitated (such as an aging parent) or a child or adult with special needs, an estate plan can provide for them and guarantee their continued care without turning to a court-appointed guardianship or conservatorship, which can limit their freedom and even their dignity. And finally, should you yourself require long-term care as you age due to declining physical health or dementia, an estate plan allows you to pre-determine the person you will trust with making financial and healthcare decisions on your behalf.
