Protecting your family when you can no longer do so is one of the most important reasons to contact a Trusts & Estates Attorney.
Creating even a basic estate plan will put you in control of your finances so your loved ones will be spared the heartache, expense and frustration should you become disabled or pass away.
Estate planning documents can also limit estate taxes, discourage legal challenges from heirs, and address community/separate property concerns or issues. A well-drafted estate plan can also hold assets for children and provide for their future.
Our attorneys can also present additional opportunities, including a comprehensive Legacy Plan that would allow beneficiaries to control their inheritance while held in a Trust, but at the same time provide all the benefits that a Trust can offer.
Without proper estate planning documents in place, intestacy laws will dictate who inherits your property, and the results might not be what you intend. It is best to create an estate plan that reflects your wishes and gives you and your loved ones peace of mind.
Pacific Wealth Legal Advisors' Trust & Estate Attorneys have years of experience planning and preparing for the eventualities we all loathe to consider. If done with care and proper interpretation of probate, tax, and estate laws, you can save your family potentially years of heartache and unnecessary expense.
