Caring adviser finds unique solutions for clients looking to draft a will
Drafting an effective, authoritative will is the foundation of a successful estate plan. Even if you choose to shift assets through a trust or some other legal device, a will allocates property that is not otherwise handled. Attorney Tammy Gosling provides thorough advice on each aspect of will preparation, including:
- Distributing assets — Our firm takes the time to understand your goals so that we can develop a document that truly reflects your wishes and values. In addition to preserving your assets and setting forth clear instructions about how they should be allocated, we take special care to achieve clients’ goals by avoiding undue taxes and making charitable bequests.
- Guardianship — If you have minor children or legal responsibility for an adult who is disabled, it’s essential you designate a guardian for them as part of your estate plan. Establishing a firm guardianship protocol averts painful disputes and helps to ensure that an appropriate person will have legal authority should you pass away or become incapacitated.
- Review and adjustments — Significant life changes can alter how people want to handle their final instructions. However, many people fail to adjust wills and other estate instruments after a major personal or financial change. If you have not reviewed your documents in some time, we can examine them with you and make any necessary revisions.
Our personalized approach to each matter enables clients to develop a comprehensive estate plan that is specifically suited to their situation and needs.
Effective advocate handles a full range of probate matters
If you have been named as executor or administrator of someone’s estate, the probate process can present challenges at an already difficult time. Our firm represents clients who are looking to enforce the terms of a will as well as beneficiaries who believe they have been wrongly denied their proper inheritance. For estate representatives, we handle each phase of the procedure, starting with the filing of the will and Petition of Probate. From there, we assist executors as they gather assets, bring them into the estate and inventory them. When each item has been collected and all expenses have been paid, our firm facilitates the distribution of property in accordance with the will’s terms. If you seek to contest a will, we can advise you of your legal options and enforce your rights.
