Wills are very effective at protecting many aspects of an estate, but they must be crafted with detail and according to your individual needs.


A trust can serve a variety of purposes and provide protection for your assets and loved ones.

It is possible to create your own estate plans, but how well do you know the laws? Estate planning documents are not enforceable unless it is properly crafted. An attorney can guide you through the intricate legal details and help you create a customized plan that not only maximizes your protection, but your assets as well. You can also avoid disputes with a well-written estate plan.

What Does Estate Planning Involve?

Estate planning involves planning for the transfer of your assets and properties once you pass away. During the process, you can choose beneficiaries, appoint guardians for young children, and decide how your assets will be distributed. You can also plan for disability or incapacity by designating an individual to handle your financial and medical affairs if you become unable to do so yourself.

What Happens If I Die without a Will or Trust?

This is a common misconception about estate planning. Anyone can benefit from having a solid estate plan, whether you have large assets or a modest estate. With estate planning, you can do much more than just pass down assets or properties – you can appoint guardians for your children, plan for incapacity, leave funeral instructions, and many other details.

Can I Update My Estate Plan?

In fact, it is recommended that you regularly update your estate planning documents when a major life event occurs, such as a birth, death, marriage, or if a family member becomes disabled. These are just a few examples of instances where it is a good idea to update your plan to reflect these changes.
