The beginning of the Estate Planning Process
There are many different estate planning strategies available to meet the
needs of your unique situation. The first step is to come to our office
for an initial consultation to discuss your priorities and to review your
options. We look at several factors, such as who you would like to name
as your heirs, who you trust to oversee your affairs in the event that
you become incapacitated, and who you would choose as the executor of
your estate upon your passing.
We can also examine your financial circumstances to determine whether you
need to establish a trust in order to avoid the federal estate tax and
the probate process, or if a simple will would be sufficient for providing
for the smooth transfer of assets to your family members.

With a carefully prepared estate plan in place, you can move forward into
the future with the confidence and peace of mind that come with knowing
that you have taken measures to ensure that your loved ones are not subjected
to unnecessary stress due to legal complications after you pass away.
In this way, estate planning is one of the most compassionate things that
you can do for your family. It not only provides them with the benefits
of your generosity, but also serves to prevent strife and conflict over
inheritances by establishing clear and unequivocal directions concerning
the distribution of your assets.
