Why Clients Hire Us for Estate Planning
Creating a solid estate plan (or updating your existing plan) helps ensure your wishes are followed, and assets are protected when a life event happens or is potentially anticipated. Although your situation is unique, our experience with so many cases helps ensure we cover all the bases, especially things that you may not have ever thought could or would happen or be applicable to you.
Why Clients Hire Us for Probate (Estate Administration)
If You Don’t Know the Laws or Paperwork
Probate laws, and the forms used, are written in detailed and hard-to-understand language. Many things in probate are not intuitive and must be achieved in a particular order. Failure to properly and timely accomplish tasks could cause you to be personally liable or, at a minimum, cause delays.
To Avoid or Minimize Family Disputes
Family members may disagree on how to handle inherited property. When a lawyer is involved, these issues are often minimized or avoided altogether.
As your attorney, we help protect the executor from personal liability for paying the debts and taxes of the deceased.
Allows You to Focus on Your Family and Job
If you have little free time, getting help from a law firm saves you time.
Reduce Your Stress
Why guess or hope you are doing things correctly? We know the process, and we often carry the burden, so you do not have to worry throughout the process.
Your Reputation Can Be at Stake
If you were named the executor, you have a duty to act in the best interest of the estate and heirs. If you fail in your duty, don’t pay taxes when due, or fail to keep heirs informed, you can be liable personally. An attorney ensures you do things properly.
Savings and Speed
Minimizes court supervision of the executor and saves money by reducing or eliminating amounts the deceased owes creditors. It expedites the sale of real and personal property and saves legal fees for the court to confirm the sale. Often, the investment in a probate attorney more than pays for itself, and the estate ends up having more money than it would otherwise.
When Estate Assets are Complicated
Certain assets such as real estate, art, or a business can create complications or additional steps like obtaining appraisals, protecting, and insuring the asset. We have handled many of these situations in the past to help maximize what the heirs received.
