What Can You Determine Through Estate Planning?

  How and by whom your assets will be managed for your benefit during your life if you ever become unable to manage them yourself

  How and to whom your assets will be distributed after your death

  How and by whom your personal care will be managed and how health care decisions will be made during your lifetime if you become unable to care for yourself

It’s common to think that a Will is the epitome of estate planning, but there is so much more. While a Will is a crucial aspect, other documents are needed to fully address all your financial, medical, and business planning. As an experienced attorney, I can ensure your estate is properly set up to give you and your family peace of mind.

What Is a Revocable Living Trust

A Revocable Living Trust allows you to put your assets into the trust, which is administered by you during your lifetime and transferred to your beneficiaries when you die. A Revocable Living Trust allows your estate to pass to your beneficiaries without the need for probate court involvement. The successor trustee can also manage your trust estate should you become disabled prior to death.
