What is Estate Planning?

Estate planning is the process of determining who will make decisions for you if you become disabled and efficiently transferring your assets to your beneficiaries while also protecting those assets. Usually, we use a will or trust as the main planning document. In addition to the main planning document, we use other documents like financial and healthcare powers of attorney to nominate someone to make decisions for you if you cannot make decisions on your own. We also use marital property agreements, living wills, and additional documents to address other potential issues. Estate planning can provide structure to money inherited by disabled or minor children to ensure the money is used properly after your death.

Why do I practice Estate Planning?

I practice estate planning, because I understand how hard people work to earn the money they make during their lives. I also know how important it is for them to preserve those assets. It is important for people to have the chance to enjoy what the world has to offer. By working in estate planning, I can help families and businesses protect their assets, so they enjoy the benefits of their hard work and preserve them for their loved ones.
