How Can I Help?
A Friendly Approach & Flat Fees to Simplify the Estate Planning Process
Draft a Will
Your will serves as an outline for your family to follow once you've passed. You'll be able to designate beneficiaries, name an executor, pick a guardian for your children, specify who will receive what assets, and more. If you want to make sure that your wishes are fulfilled in the future, you'll want to work with an estate planning attorney to draft a will that covers all the bases.
Set Up a Trust
If your goal is to help your loved ones avoid the difficult process of probate after your death, consider setting up a trust. A trust can give you the power to determine how, when, and to whom your assets will be distributed down the line. There are a variety of trusts, including revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, and more. To find out if this legal arrangement is right for you, talk to me today.
