Estate Law

You care about your loved ones. Take measures to ensure their well-being after you’re gone.

So many times, we see extremely complex and troublesome situations that could have been eliminated with just a little bit of planning. Without effective estate planning, loved ones can be saddled with unnecessary debt and stress.

A little bit of forethought really does go a long way.

We can provide you with personalized advice and assistance regarding estate planning. A discussion with us can help you determine what estate documents will best benefit you and your family.

Wills
No will is simple. Whether your estate is large or small, you need to mitigate the potential for conflict among your surviving family. Death is hard enough to deal with – don’t leave room for doubt.
Trusts
Sometimes, advanced estate planning is necessary. If you want to ensure the well-being of a family member, but a lump-sum disposition isn’t ideal, a trust might be right for you.
Living wills
Make your wishes known. Right now, if you were to become incapacitated, what would happen? Who makes the decisions? If these questions aren’t immediately clear to your family and loved ones, you need a living will. Do the right thing.
Conservatorships
If you care for an incapacitated individual, you know that complex financial decisions must be made on behalf of that person. Legally speaking, this can be tricky. Consult with Taylor and Hinkle to understand the best way to support those you love.
