Whether you are a single person, a young married couple with children, or empty-nesters, you need to have a properly drafted, well thought out estate plan.
In the absence of a properly prepared estate plan, concerned friends and relatives can be left in the dark over the health care of a loved one who suddenly becomes incapacitated. In the event of a death, the distribution of the individual’s property or assets to beneficiaries can be more involved and prolonged without a legal will or trust in place. At McGrath North, we assist our clients in tailoring their estate-planning portfolios to include the appropriate power of attorney arrangements, wills, trusts or other end-of-life documents. In addition to aligning with the personal intentions and desires of the client on issues involving health care and end-of-life decisions, our estate planning solutions are private agreements so there is no need for costly court supervision.
Industry Experience: Wills, trusts, powers of attorney, health-care directives.
If you are considering seeking advice from counsel, here is what we suggest you keep in mind:
- You want to clearly communicate your intentions and desires to your legal counsel.
- You want legal counsel that can explain all of the estate planning options available to you including the different types of wills, trusts and power of attorney arrangements.
- You want legal counsel that is familiar with the specific requirements of estate planning in your local jurisdiction.
