Helping You Finalize Your Estate Plans
It is never too early to start thinking about estate planning. Putting together a comprehensive estate plan with the help of an experienced lawyer can give you peace of mind and confidence that your wishes will be implemented in the event of your death or incapacity.At the law firm of Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP, our experienced attorneys are prepared to skillfully guide you toward the estate plan that is right for you. We help clients draft all types of documents, including the following:
- Creating a will: A will is the most basic estate planning document. In addition to setting out how you want your assets to be distributed upon your death, your will also communicates your wishes concerning funeral arrangements and guardianship of your minor children.
- Designing a trust: As part of the estate planning process, many people choose to place some or all of their assets into trusts in order to avoid public and potentially expensive probate proceedings. Trusts also have a variety of other potential estate planning benefits.
- Establishing power of attorney: A durable power of attorney is a document that gives someone else the authority to handle your affairs if you become unable to do so.
- Creating living wills and health care proxies: A living will expresses your wishes regarding life-preserving medical treatment. It is often used in conjunction with a health care proxy, which appoints someone you trust to represent you in these matters.
Settling Your Estate Litigation Disputes With Sensitivity
In addition to assisting clients with estate planning, our lawyers also represent executors, trustees and other parties in disputed estate litigation, including will and trust contests. We handle these cases with sensitivity and dedication to our clients’ best interests.
