Guided estate planning key to avoiding litigation

One of the saddest situations we see here at our firm is litigation to arise from the estate of a deceased individual. The decedent's unhappy heirs and/or beneficiaries are dissatisfied with their loved ones' intentions regarding the distribution of assets from the estate and turn to the courts to right perceived wrongs.

The problem with this scenario is that these court cases often tear families apart. The deep rifts resulting from litigation may never be mended in the heirs lifetimes. These familial fissures can even extend into future generations, polarizing descendants for years to come.

Certainly, that was never the individual's intent. But poor estate planning (or none at all) can create the perfect storm for this to occur.

We encourage all of our clients to draft a comprehensive estate plan well before they ever have to contemplate their own mortality. None of us is guaranteed tomorrow, and you want your legacy to be beneficial to your heirs.

We realize that every situation is different. We can customize an estate plan that covers all the bases, including various types of trusts.

Generally speaking, the more assets and resources that you own, the more complex your estate plan will be. For many clients, a simple will is insufficient to address their needs.

From ladybird deeds to spendthrift trusts, we will examine your circumstances and offer our best recommendation of an estate plan to address all pertinent factors.

Don't let your death be the catalyst for a family fight among heirs. Allow us to help you sort out the particulars and arrive at the best solution possible.
