Many people mistakenly believe estate planning is only for the ultra-wealthy, complete with elaborate structures for passing money to their heirs, or for people who are acutely ill and contemplating their death. In truth, there is no one that would not benefit from a comprehensive estate plan. Estate planning is beneficial to everyone regardless of income, net worth, or health.
How Estate Planning Works
Estate planning is not a single document or a thick file outlining your personal wishes for your care or investments. Proper estate planning involves working with a compassionate and highly trained attorney who will take time to get to know you through an organized planning process. Together you will create a strategy that will be carefully crafted to the highest legal standards. With years of legal, tax and financial experience, your estate planning attorney will translate your wishes and goals for the future into a sophisticated legal plan. TrustCounsel attorneys don’t just prepare documents for you, they are highly trained professionals who get to know you as an individual and dedicate themselves to developing a plan for you that will protect your family, preserve your assets and save taxes.
