Estate Planning

A well designed estate plan provides you with the comfort and confidence of knowing that your loved ones are secure for the future.  When a person dies or becomes incapacitated, a comprehensive and updated estate plan allows the family to quickly and efficiently address specific needs and problems that may arise, such as:

  • Making health care decisions for an incapacitated individual
  • Avoiding Probate (a lengthy process that can cost a significant amount of money and requires extensive court oversight)
  • Avoiding an unnecessary estate-tax liability
  • Avoiding delay and frustration in estate settlement
  • Providing for dependents with special needs
  • Leaving assets to a non-citizen spouse
  • Benefiting a charity
  • Specifying the amount, manner and timing of distributions to young or financially unsophisticated heirs
  • Leaving assets to children from a previous marriage

Our attorneys advise and work with clients and their financial advisors to create a comprehensive estate plan to transfer wealth in an orderly and efficient manner.  A properly crafted estate plan can make leaving assets to heirs a relatively simple process.  Contact an attorney at Mayman & Mayman LLP to help guide you through the process.
