All About Estates
Estate planning and probate are not morbid topics. Rather, these legal processes affirm life’s priorities and support sound financial management. At Morcom Law, we have numerous long-term clients who, across generations in the same families who rely on our services, recognize the importance of quality legal counsel for estate planning and the administration of estates.
Our estate planning and probate law attorneys are here to help you put your affairs in order with a sense of purpose and peace of mind. You may want to support a charity with your wealth or you may want to protect your loved ones in the event that you become incapacitated. Put our combined 30 years of experience on your side as we help you implement the legal tools necessary to meet your needs.
A key factor in estate planning is to consider how to use your assets well and prepare to provide for family members or charitable causes. Legal tools such as the following can help you leverage the law in line with your wishes:
- A will
- One or more trusts
- One or more powers of attorney
- A health care directive
If you have been named the executor or personal representative for settling someone else’s estate, you may consider this both an honor and a cause for caution. You want to be sure to fulfill your duties with regard to creditors, beneficiaries and the probate court. We can help you do so expeditiously while respecting a family’s time for grieving.
What if there is no will and you must take care of a loved one’s assets after an intestate death? We can save you time, energy and worries over potential lawsuits as you navigate the administration of either an intestate situation or a planned estate.
Leave Worries Aside And Choose Peace Of Mind
As you put your own estate plan together, we can help you make the fulfillment of your wishes legally binding. For example, you may need to establish a special needs trust for an adult child while also protecting an inheritance for your other children. Or you may be the executor of an estate that is facing a possible will contest. Our years of experience have prepared us to help you resolve any unique challenge with as little disturbance to the overall estate as possible.
We will direct you skillfully as you discover and implement the right legal solutions to plan your estate or administer someone else’s estate. Call us at 717-921-1422 or complete our online form to request a consultation.
