Establishing A Will
Also called a last will and testament, a will is a set of instructions for the distribution of your assets and payment of your debts upon your death. The only way to ensure assets are dispersed according to your wishes is to have a legally valid will. Our lawyers are able to thoroughly explain how to draft a will that conveys your wishes.
If you have a will, but haven’t review or revised it recently, we will take the time to examine your situation and determine if your will is still properly structured to meet your goals and life circumstances. In addition to handling the drafting of a will, we handle litigation issues when a will has been contested by a beneficiary or other individual.
The Advantages Of A Trust
Establishing a trust is an effective way of protecting assets for your future or your loved one’s futures. Trusts are flexible estate planning tools and there are many different types of trusts that can be used to accomplish various goals. By assessing your situation and desire for the assets that will be going into the trust, we can effectively determine the best type of trust for you. Below are some of the trusts we help our clients create:
