Whether you are 20 years old or 90 years old, taking time to consider your estate planning needs is an important measure.

The purpose of estate planning is to ensure that your assets end up with the intended beneficiary or beneficiaries. If you do not create your own estate plan, then your assets will be distributed according to a detailed allocation process established by law (intestate succession laws). Such intestate succession laws could distribute your assets in a way you never intended and could create family disputes and costly litigation. Some people attempt to develop their own estate plan without the benefit of expert legal advice, but such attempts often lead to unnecessary complications and expense for their families following their deaths.
Our lawyers at Bennett Guthrie PLLC will assist clients to make sure your estate plan does what you want it to. We will help you establish a comprehensive estate plan that fits your unique situation through the preparation of wills, trusts, financial powers of attorney, and health care powers of attorney.
