Estate law covers a variety of documents, and we’ll be happy to go over your options.
Estate law involves planning the distribution of your assets in the manner in which you intend. While it might surprise you that your bequeathed items can be written out on a paper napkin and potentially honored, if you want to be certain that your assets end up with the intended beneficiary or beneficiaries, it is wiser to utilize the legal services of an estate lawyer to draw up a last will and testament. At Bennett Guthrie PLLC, we hate to see when family disputes and costly litigation occur as a result of the lack of a properly prepared and executed document. While disputes can happen with either a plan written out in your own hand or one that we assist you with, there is a higher probability of unnecessary complications for your family with a plan completed without expert legal advice.
Your last will and testament is a part of your estate plan, but it is not the only component. Estate law also covers financial powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney, and trust documents. We serve the High Point, North Carolina area with comprehensive estate law plans that can give you peace of mind that your wishes will be honored. We are happy to discuss the benefits of trusts and when they are an ideal solution, as well as what is involved with the various types of powers of attorney.
If you have any estate law-related questions or would like to get started setting up an estate plan, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Since 1985, we have provided legal services while giving each client the attention they deserve. We never rush you, as we believe you should be able to take as much time as you need to fully understand the documents and your options. Call today to learn more.
