Although end of life is a sensitive topic most people don't want to think about, an estate plan is something everyone should have. Whether you are a young parent seeking to make sure your children are cared for in the event of your passing or if your an older individual looking to protect your assets, we can help.
An estate plan will ensure that your wishes pertaining to your assets, children, and beneficiaries are achieved. Having an estate plan will help to eliminate conflicts during an already highly emotional time. Also, having an estate plan will help your beneficiaries avoid the need for probate and and can save your estate and beneficiaries from having to pay expensive probate and attorney fees.
A proper estate plan is more than just a will. When we meet with you, we will assess your financial situation and family dynamic, identify your goals and develop a comprehensive strategy to help you achieve those goals.
