Do I Really Need to Make an Estate Plan?

Every adult should have an up-to-date estate plan. Why?

  • Leave your assets to the right beneficiaries: With an estate plan in place, you can ensure that you leave your assets to the beneficiaries you prefer. Without a will and other documents, a probate court may distribute your property to parties you would not have chosen.

  • Make it easier on your family: Your family will have to scramble to pick up the pieces of your estate and cope with the probate process if you pass away without an estate plan. An estate plan is a crucial road map to guide your family after your death.

  • Avoid probate and taxes: Preserving your assets from estate taxes and probate is one of the major benefits of an estate plan. Our firm can help ensure that you protect your finances so your loved ones inherit as much of your estate as possible.
