Benefits Of An Estate Planning Lawyer

Having an estate plan is vital for everyone, regardless of age. Estate plans guard your assets and legally uphold your desire for how they will be distributed and who will receive them after you pass away. An estate plan also allows you to appoint people to make medical and financial decisions for you in the event that you become incapacitated.

While it is possible to draft a will on your own, you should consider seeking the counsel of a lawyer who can help you understand how estate planning documents function and what you need to consider.

Create A Customized Plan

At the law firm of Carolann M. Aschoff, we do not create cookie-cutter estate plans. After discussing your wishes and the value of your property, we will partner with you to draft a customized plan that fits your needs.

Your estate plan may include:

  • A will
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Healthcare directives
  • Guardianships
