The Before – Estate Planning
It’s natural to avoid thinking about what will happen when you die. But the truth is that we never know when our time will come. Failing to make an enforceable plan for how your final wishes should be carried out will only place more stress and financial burdens on the loved ones you leave behind. Having an enforceable and complete estate plan will help your loved ones feel confident and secure in carrying out your wishes.
More importantly, there is a great deal of misinformation out there regarding how to legally create an enforceable estate plan. Everyone, no matter how large or small your current wealth may be, should seek the advice of a competent estate planning attorney to ensure that your wishes are clearly stated and enforceable.
The Larkin Law Firm can help you navigate the complex and multi-faceted labyrinth of Wills and Trusts. For convenience, we offer our clients the option of a complete basic estate plan for one flat fee. In certain cases, clients may need a more individualized plan. We also offer estate planning services that are tailored to the specific needs of our clients, such as business succession planning, living trusts, and much more.
It is important to avoid the lengthy, cumbersome and expensive probate process by ensuring that your assets are properly held and their disposition clearly spelled out in binding legal documents. Because inheritance can be subject to a variety of federal, state and income taxes, you need competent advice to preserve the value of your assets. At The Larkin Law Firm, we realize how sensitive these matters are and provide caring, confidential counsel for clients and their families.
