Estate Planning

Estate planning is for everyone – it’s not just for the wealthy. Your property and assets make up your estate – and no matter how big or how small these assets are, everyone needs to have a plan in place for distribution of these assets after death.

What is Estate Planning?

Estate planning encompasses preparing for the transfer of a person’s wealth and assets after his or her death. A person’s “estate” consists of their property, life insurance, pensions, real estate, cars, personal belongings, as well as debts.

Why Do I Need Estate Planning?

A well-prepared and comprehensive Estate Plan can help your loved ones in so many ways – and can save them from any disputes over your assets that all-too-often happen in the absence of a proper legal Estate Plan.   It’s never too early – or too late – to seek the counsel of an experienced, and trusted, attorney to plan for the future for you and for your loved ones.   The time to seek counsel to develop a proper Estate Plan is now – and an effective, thorough Estate Plan can give you, and your family, peace of mind for years, and generations, to come.
