Family is Everything. Let’s Talk about Your Will or Trust
Wills and Trusts are just tools in the larger process of “conservation/preservation.” There is an unfortunate, widespread misconception that this topic is a subject of interest only to the wealthy. In fact, an estate plan provides the legal mechanism for disposing of property upon death in a way that recognizes your wishes and the needs of your survivors, while minimizing taxes. For many it involves, even more importantly, planning for the handling of affairs in case of disability, and the deeply personal medical choices to be made as life nears its end. Conservation/preservation is not just for rich people. Trusts can play an important role in providing order to your financial affairs, assisting with your tax planning, simplifying your estate settlement and providing guidance for your family and other heirs.
