I am sure you have heard the expression that there are no guarantees in life other than death and taxes. That’s why establishing an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones.
Everyone needs an estate plan, no matter your life situation – if you are married, have children, or neither. Proper estate planning not only helps ensure that you pass your assets to the desired people, but it can also spare your loved ones the expense, stress, and time associated with managing your affairs in the event you become disabled or pass away.

We work closely with our clients to help them decide the best way to own and manage their property, and upon death, leave their property to the people and charities they want.
A well-crafted estate plan will provide your loved ones with an effective and efficient plan so you can avoid guardianship during your lifetime, probate at death, estate taxes, and unnecessary delays.
You should consult an estate planning attorney to review your family and financial situation, your goals, and to explain the various options available to you. Once your estate plan is in place, you will have peace of mind knowing that you have provided for yourself and your family in the event of a worst-case scenario.
