Estate Planning - 1-800-Law-Firm

You might think it’s not something you even need to think about.

Do you have a car, a home or other real estate, checking and savings accounts, investments, life insurance, furniture or personal possessions? Then you have an estate. Almost everyone has one. If you don’t make a plan for how your estate will be handled when you die, who will? Will you leave your life’s work and your family’s future to the courts, the state or to chance?

Why you need a Super-Will/Estate Plan:

If you have assets.

If something happens to you, what happens to your money, property, and possessions? Don’t leave it to chance. 1-800-LAW-FIRM can help you make a legal plan, designate power of attorney, and give you peace of mind - at a price you can afford.

If you have loved ones.

Be confident that your spouse and family know your wishes in the event of a loss. Specify a guardian for your children and your pets. Name the executor of your estate. Help them avoid the delays and costs of probate. Your family and your financial situation changes over time; so do the laws and regulations. Estate planning should be an ongoing process in every adult’s life.

If you have medical wishes

Protect your health, your wishes and your rights. If you become temporarily or permanently disabled, who will pay your bills and handle your financial matters? Who has the legal authority to make medical decisions if you are not able to make them on your own? Who will make sure your end of life decisions and final arrangements are known – and followed?

Protect your assets and your loved ones.

Make sure that any, and all, assets (money, property, personal possessions, investments, business ventures, etc.) will be distributed per your wishes, with the least amount of taxes, legal fees and court costs possible.

You worked a lifetime to build your personal assets. Why would you let the government or the courts – or chance – decide how they are distributed? An estate planning lawyer will help you prepare a clear plan with properly executed estate planning documents to save your family confusion, stress and unnecessary legal costs and taxes.

Super-Wills:

  • Avoid probate
  • You decide where your assets will go
Wills:

  • Who will be your children's guardian?
  • Who will serve as executor of your estate?
  • Who will manage the inheritance of your minor children until they become adults?
Final Arrangements:

No one wants to think about their funeral arrangements, but think how hard it will be for your loved ones if they have to do it.

Living Trusts:

If you own property, consider a Living Trust so your survivors won’t have to go through probate court, which is a time-consuming and expensive process. A Living Trust offers privacy, controlled distribution and tax savings.

Financial Power of Attorney:

Who will handle your finances if you become unable to manage your affairs? A Financial Power of Attorney (FPOA) lets you appoint and authorize someone to act on your behalf.

Protect your health, your wishes - and your rights.

Give someone you trust legal authority to care for you and make decisions for you in the event you become temporarily or permanently disabled.

Rest easy knowing your loved ones won’t have to guess at how best to take care of you. Work with one of our attorneys and prepare for the unexpected with a well-thought-out plan for the end of life, disabling accident or injury.

Medical Power of Attorney

Appoint someone to make medical treatment decisions if and when you cannot tell the doctors what you want.

Living Will

How will you make sure your medical directives are followed if you are unable to communicate due to illness or injury? Our estate planning attorneys will help you put together an estate plan that’s right for you. Call us or fill out the contact form on this page to get started.

HIPPAA Authorization

Your doctor can discuss your medical records with your family or Patient Advocate, right? Wrong. Per the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), medical providers such as hospitals, doctors' offices, or clinics must have written authorization to release medical records to anybody that is not the patient including a spouse or other family members.
