Gump, Deal & Hirth also provides legal guidance with estate planning to protect your legacy and your loved ones. Many legal tools can be used to accomplish this which can help you avoid probate, minimize tax consequences, and protect you financially, medically, and in other ways.
Estate plans can include:
- Wills. These set forth the property you wish to pass on, name an executor to manage the administration of your will, name your heirs and beneficiaries and provide instructions for the distribution of their inheritances and benefits.
- Trusts. These are separate legal entities into which you convey property and assets to be managed by your named trustee(s) for the benefit of your beneficiaries. Trusts have many purposes and arrangements, depending on your needs and goals.
- Powers of Attorney. These authorize a trusted person to act on your behalf over financial or life matters when you cannot.
- Living Wills. These name a trusted person to specify the type of health care you want or do not want when you have become terminally ill or injured and cannot make your wishes known.
If you need assistance with probate or any aspect of estate planning, you can count on the diligence and dedication of our knowledgeable and experienced team.
