Estate Planning Attorney
Estate planning is preparing for the distribution of an individual’s property upon his or her death. Thre main goal of proper estate planning is to avoid complicated legal processes (i.e., probate), minimize or eliminate unnecessary conflict between family members, and reduce the amount of taxes taken by the government. Thoughtful estate planning includes:
- Preserving asset control.
- Protecting assets against nursing home costs and Medicaid.
- Establishing protection for a spouse in the event nursing home care is needed.
- Avoiding probate court after death.
- Eliminating/minimizing estate taxes.
