Estate planning is the process of putting your wishes down on paper, in legally valid documents. A comprehensive estate plan includes a will, an advance health care directive and a financial power of attorney. More than just these documents, however, an estate plan is a comprehensive strategy that can address all of your priorities, minimize administration and expense as much as is possible and wise, and guide your loved ones in times of disability and death. Our estate planning lawyers will work with you to get to know you and your family and loved ones, then help you design a holistic plan that will facilitate your personal and financial needs and requirements, as you direct. (For resources to assist you in designing and maintaining your estate plan from our attorneys, see our blog at http://plansonpurpose.wordpress.com.)
Estate Planning Protects Your Future and Your Family's Future
Depending on your circumstances, your estate plan should also include guardianships to identify who you wish to care for your children in the event of your death. Your estate plan may also include one or more trusts, which are legal instruments that give you additional control over how you would like your assets distributed.
