Estate Planning Lawyer - Plan Ahead to Avoid Inheritance Problems
An estate planning lawyer can help individuals create a last will or establish a trust to protect inheritance assets in the event of their death. It is important to select a probate law attorney who listens to your needs and provides sound advice for developing strategies which benefit designated beneficiaries.
Recently, a colleague hired an estate planning lawyer to assist with her terminally-ill mother's estate. Although her mother was not a wealthy woman, she owned a home, automobile and held financial portfolios and life insurance policies.
The estate attorney was referred through her mother's credit union. Considerable family strife existed within the family and her mother wanted to disinherit one of her sons. The estate planner executed a simple will and provided strategies to prevent assets from passing through probate here.
