Estate planning is an important process that involves the management and distribution of your assets and affairs after your death. It can be a complex process, and it’s important to have guidance from an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. At Lawrence & Lawrence, PLLC we have much experience in estate planning, and can help you with every aspect of this process.
One of the primary ways that our attorneys at Lawrence & Lawrence, PLLC can help you with estate planning is by assisting you in drafting a will. A will is a legal document that outlines your wishes for the distribution of your assets after your death. It can also name guardians for any minor children you have. An experienced attorney can help you ensure that your will is clear and legally binding, and that it accurately reflects your wishes.
Another important aspect of estate planning is the creation of trusts. A trust is a legal arrangement in which one person, the trustee, holds and manages assets on behalf of another person, the beneficiary. There are many different types of trusts, and an experienced attorney can help you determine which type is best for your situation. Trusts can be used to minimize taxes, avoid probate, and provide for the care of minor children or disabled family members.
Power Of Attorney
In addition to wills and trusts, our attorneys can help you establish a power of attorney. This legal document grants another person the authority to make decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so yourself. This can be important in the event of an unexpected illness or injury, and can help ensure that your affairs are managed according to your wishes.
Advanced Healthcare Directives
Advanced healthcare directives are another important aspect of estate planning. These legal documents provide instructions for your medical care if you are unable to make decisions for yourself. This can include decisions about life-sustaining treatment, organ donation, and other medical procedures. An experienced attorney can help you create a comprehensive advanced healthcare directive that reflects your wishes and ensures that your healthcare decisions are respected.
Overall, estate planning is an important process that can provide peace of mind for you and your loved ones. Our attorneys at Lawrence & Lawrence, PLLC can help you navigate this process and ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. Their expertise and guidance can help you minimize taxes, avoid probate, and provide for the care of your loved ones.
