For decades, we have helped numerous clients sort through and select all the important little details they should include in these documents. Helping clients to best preserve and protect their assets and property is achieved at the James H. Horton Law Firm by creating valid estate planning documents that will withstand legal challenges. There are several documents every person should have drawn up by an experienced estate planning lawyer, regardless of the size of their estate. Some important documents to consider having our Estate Planning lawyers create to protect you and your loved ones include:
- Living & Revocable Trusts
- Medical and Durable Powers of Attorney
- Declaration of Guardian in the Event of Later Incapacity or Need of Guardian
Having a will or trust established in advance of need is the best way to avoid emotional family disputes over assets and property. With detailed estate planning, you know that your wishes will be known and followed, and that the heirs you choose will receive the inheritances you wanted them to have. If you are incapacitated temporarily or permanently, a living will or trust is an excellent way to protect your own interests. If you should become incapacitated and unable to manage your own financial affairs, or when you die, these documents contain your personal wishes for handling your assets and estate matters. Simple estate planning is important for everyone and gives you peace of mind. When you have a large estate and property holdings, more complex planning is highly recommended.
