Estate planning can involve a lot of difficult decisions, decisions involving illness, incapacitation and death — decisions many of us would be more comfortable with putting off until “tomorrow.”
From dealing with the clerk of court, preparing notifications, helping you understand the tax implications of your decisions and working to reduce any kind of internal family issues that could lead to probate disputes later on — there is no aspect of either the estate planning or probate processes that we leave to chance. Best of all, you’ll have peace of mind knowing your estate has been taken care of and that your desires have been expressed in way that minimizes the chances for future conflict among your heirs and beneficiaries.
