Many people mistakenly believe estate planning is only for the wealthy, those with elaborate schemes for passing money to their heirs, or for people who are acutely ill and contemplating their death. In truth, there is no estate too large or too small 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 a compassionate and highly trained individual 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 financial and legal experience, your estate planning attorney will translate your wishes and goals for the future into sophisticated legal documents. TrustCounsel attorneys don’t just draft 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.

TrustCounsel’s estate planning attorneys work closely with clients so that they understand the differences between wills and trusts, become aware of their financial risks, and coordinate asset protection for themselves and their heirs. Estate planning is for everyone interested in making a positive difference in the lives of others after they’re gone, whether it’s a spouse, children or other relatives, a life partner or business partners.
