Your “Family Law Firm”
- Posted in: Elder Law
We write a lot on our blog about the separate "pieces" of an estate plan, the unique financial challenges facing adults these days, or each of the many individual concerns we face in the course of keeping up with the present and planning for the future; but today we want to look at the big picture. We strongly feel that planning for the future—really taking care of your family and loved ones—is not about individual pieces, it’s about seeing how those pieces fit together and make up the whole. Which is why, whenever we can, our office takes a comprehensive approach to protecting your family and your future:
Providing for young children: My son just turned 18 last year and I know that one of the hardest things to do as a parent is to try to imagine your child’s life without you. I
also know that getting over that hurdle and choosing the best guardians
for your child and creating a trust designed for their unique needs can
bring a world of comfort.
Providing for elderly parents: Baby boomers are not called “the sandwich generation” for nothing. Having an attorney who can help you with the guardianship of minor children and then
turn around and help you understand the ins and outs of Medicare for the benefit of your aging parents is essential.
Planning your own retirement: The process of creating an estate plan forces you to get all of your ducks in a row, including your retirement and investment accounts, and we can help. In addition, our firm can help you understand (and create, if desired) a Retirement Trust, which not only extends your retirement fund past its initial payout date, but gives you more options for distributions.
Saving for college: We can help you make sure that your college-age children will have the wherewithal to follow their dreams through the benefit of education in the event that anything happens to you. An education trust is the perfect way to provide for your children and grandchildren's schooling.
Investing in the future: Planning for the future is the business of an estate planning attorney, whether it be protecting your life insurance death benefits for your family, saving your property from probate fees and hassle, or minimizing your taxes.
We know that it can be challenging to find someone you can trust with your family security and finances. Our compassion and expertise make us more than just an estate planning firm, a probate specialist, or an elder law firm—we’re your "family law firm."
