No one should leave their long-term financial planning to chance. Without an estate plan in place, your assets could be at risk. Should you die without a valid will, your estate may be distributed to unintended beneficiaries or unnecessarily probated.
In addition, it is very important to have advance directives that provide for your finances and medical care in the event you are incapacitated. These documents guide your representatives to take actions in accordance with your wishes.
Every individual will have unique estate planning needs. A person with a large estate may need to take steps to avoid federal inheritance taxes. Parents in blended families with stepchildren may need to make changes to wills or trusts to ensure certain assets are set aside for each child. In some cases, the needs of minor or special needs children require consideration.
At Lissner & Lissner LLP, we have worked for decades to help people prepare estate and trust plans. In fact, most of our estate and trust planning clients come from community-based referrals, including referrals from former clients, respected lawyers, social workers and other professionals.
We provide custom solutions that reduce the time and cost of estate administration. For example, documents such as living trusts can prevent the need to probate a will.
Regardless of the complexity of your estate or trust needs, we have the experience to create a plan for you.
