If you want to ensure that your wishes are followed concerning your estate after you pass away, it is vital that you have a legally binding last will or living trust.
Last Will and Testament
A properly done will is an official legal document which may be used in probate court to determine what is to be done with a person's valuables, assets, real estate or other property upon his or her death. We are dedicated to helping clients draft and finalize a last will and testament that will hold up in court. You can create a legal will as early at 18 years old and it is never too soon to make sure your wishes for your estate and family are taken care of by legal documentation.
Revocable Living Trust
A trust is a private contract that allows you to transfer control of your assets and wealth to others at the time of your death or disability. Bank accounts, property and assets that are titled in the name of the trust at the time of death do not pass through the court supervised probate process. Rather, you name trustees who will take control of the trust assets at the time of your disability or death, and manage and/or distribute the property and assets as you have directed in the trust document. The trust serves as a “super power of attorney” at the time of disability and acts like a “will substitute” at the time of death.
An estate planning lawyer with the firm is also knowledgeable in creating Ethical Wills, Living Trusts, establishing Durable Powers of Attorney and much more. Having the help of an attorney in creating your will and/or living trust helps ensure that it becomes a fully legally binding document not up to interpretation or debate. The goal is to create a will and/or living trust that is clear, precise, procedurally and legally legitimate so there can be no question about the writer's intentions for his or her property. Don't risk your will being overturned in probate court by being ruled invalid-get the help of a skilled lawyer in drafting and finalizing your will and/or living trust.
