Estate Planning and Probate

No one likes to think about the end of their own life, or their need for a will or trust. Unfortunately, it is the one thing we all have in common. The law is always changing, but one thing remains constant: failing to plan for one’s own estate can leave family members in a legal and financial bind, and will cost thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars more than it would with sound, timely estate planning with a qualified attorney.

A well-written will, trust, and a well-planned strategy for one’s estate will make the process of death and probate as painless and inexpensive as it can be. Failing to do so will only result in unnecessary pain, aggravation, taxation and expense for surviving family members. Even worse, expenses of court oversight and legal fees will erode the estate and take money out of the pockets of those family members left behind. Worst of all, failing to plan for guardianship of minor children will leave the decisions regarding their future and care in the hands of the courts and others, making this kind of planning a necessity.
