Areas of Practice
The primary purpose of estate planning is to provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that you have done everything within your power to protect your assets and most importantly, your family, for the long-term.
There are many complex laws governing wills and estates. Lawyers handling such issues should have the necessary experience and expertise to help you:
- Take control over your property
- Ensure that you and your loved ones are taken care of should you become disabled
- Divide your assets the way you want them divided
- Save on tax dollars, professional fees, and court costs
As with anything else in life, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to effective estate planning. A good estate lawyer, however, will help you evaluate your individual circumstances to develop an estate plan that addresses your unique needs and intentions.
Depending on your age and the age of your spouse, you may also want to consider an elder law attorney to advise you on estate planning. Elder law attorneys are those lawyers hired for wills and estate planning who are also experts on the laws governing senior citizens. Because of their extensive knowledge base, they are better prepared to help older couples and individuals plan for the future.
