PLANNING FOR YOUR PROTECTION
Who will take care of you and your property if you lose your capacity? Planning for the possibility of incapacity is important and the decisions you make (or fail to make) can significantly affect you and your family. For instance, you can specify who you will authorize to be your agent and manage your property. Doing this in advance might avoid bickering or fighting between your children. You can also specify who you will authorize to make healthcare decisions for you if you become incapable of making them for yourself.
WILLS AND TRUSTS
Our estate attorneys seek to meet the needs of clients, from the simplest of estates to the more complex. Wills and trusts are often an important and necessary part of an estate plan that ensures your property will be distributed to the persons you prefer and in the manner you prefer.
A trust is, in essence, a contract where a trustee agrees to hold property for a beneficiary. Trusts can be useful for protecting a beneficiary from themselves (if they might be prone to waste the property inherited from you) or from others (because a beneficiary’s interest may be protected from their creditors or from a divorcing spouse). These are only some of the reasons for leaving property for someone in trust. Many other reasons also exist, including to achieve favorable gift, estate, and tax planning.
Our attorneys are experienced in handling sophisticated planning techniques and know the importance of estate planning instruments that are clear, unambiguous, and yet flexible enough to accommodate changed circumstances (if that is a concern). They also understand how estate planning techniques and strategies may assist in protecting your property from creditors’ claims.
