Estate Planning

Do you have your affairs in order? Oftentimes, people think that estate planning is only for the wealthy, but this simply isn’t true. Everyone needs to plan ahead.

We can sit down with you and discuss your circumstances to determine exactly what documents you need. You may just need a simple Will. On the other hand, you may have a more complicated situation, where you are planning for a beneficiary who is on Medicaid or SSI, and a trust may be more suitable for your family.

Probate

Losing a loved one is tough. Dealing with the legal and financial aftermath can be confusing and overwhelming, especially during a time of grief.

Sometimes people make it easy on their loved ones by leaving a Will behind that details who gets what. Still, a Will must go through the court system before any assets can be transferred to the designated beneficiaries.

Special Needs Trust

Do you have a child or a loved one with a disability? Many people with special needs live long lives and outlive their parents. You already know that planning ahead is critical.

Getting your loved one qualified for public benefits, such as SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and Medicaid can be onerous. However, securing and maintaining these benefits can be critical to a family’s financial viability. SSI and Medicaid may be worth hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars over the lifetime of the disabled family member, especially if they have expensive medical issues.
