There are many moving parts to an estate plan, and every estate plan is different. After a comprehensive review of your assets, your wishes for your family, and your goals, in other words – your legacy, we design an estate plan specifically for you. This gives you peace of mind knowing that you have taken a giant step towards protecting your family and preserving their inheritance.
Everything changes when a loved one passes away. How are you supposed to know what kind of help you need when you’ve never gone through this before? We are here to guide you. We will work with you to determine the easiest and most cost-effective way to transfer the deceased person’s assets. We try to minimize court involvement, but if it becomes necessary to go through the court’s probate procedure, we will assist you in fulfilling the court’s requirements.
The challenges associated with aging can be very daunting, filled with concerns about senior housing care, home care issues, long-term care, asset protection, Medicare, and especially Medicaid. We can assist you with estate and Medicaid planning to help pay for medical and long-term care while protecting your assets for you and your family, whether that need is far off or imminent.
For many of us, our retirement plans are our most valuable assets. But so often they are subject to unnecessary tax and waste after the death of the retirement account owner because beneficiary designations were not coordinated with the overall estate plan. We believe that planning with retirement benefits is part of the big picture when it comes to designing your estate plan.
