Do you think, “I don’t have an estate” when asked if you have done your estate planning? It can be uncomfortable to talk about what you think estate planning is about — dying and the resultant loss of control. Or you may think that estate planning is just for the wealthy.
As uncomfortable as it may be, it’s something we are all going to have to deal with at some time. Especially if we have heirs or a spouse that we will leave behind. You don’t have to be rich to plan for your belongings and money to go to whom you choose, when you pass. An experience Estate Planning attorney can help you protect your family and your money. They can also help you protect your life and your legacy.
As estate planning attorneys talking to other lawyers, we love to chat about the legal-technical aspects of what we do. That’s good. But it’s not so good when we use the legal-technical jargon to explain ourselves to a layperson. Here’s what Estate Planning attorneys really do:
- We make sure the right people care for our client when the client can’t do it.
- We make sure the right people care for our client’s loved ones.
- We make sure that our client’s legacies — monetary and moral — are passed along to the client’s loved ones.
