Helping You Protect What Matters Most
You have worked hard and have a lot to show for it. Whether that comes in the form of a family business, a large bank account, a house full of grandchildren or a cherished vacation property, it is important to protect the legacy you have built. Whether you are looking to provide for your heirs or limit your tax liability, it all begins the same way: with the advice of a knowledgeable estate planning lawyer from PiltserCowan Law LLC.
Full-Service Estate Planning Representation
The first step for many – and the only step for others – is having a simple will in place. Your last will and testament will ensure your wishes are known regarding how you want your property treated and whom you want to benefit from your estate.
Do I really need a will?
If you are okay with the government making decisions about your money and property when you are gone, you have no need for a will. However, we think you would agree that you are better equipped to make these estate planning decisions than government employees who know nothing about you beyond your address and Social Security number.
In addition to your will, we can also help you create a health care proxy and power of attorney. These documents will allow you to choose someone you trust to make your health care and financial decisions in the event you are incapacitated. We hope you will never need them but know they can provide you and your loved ones with peace of mind about your future.
Will a will be enough for my complicated estate?
If you have a large number of assets, own a business or have other specific concerns, it may be best to create a trust or trusts in addition to or in place of a will. We can match you up with the right trusts based on your goals, including revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts and charitable trusts.
