Creating Strategic & Effective Plans for Clients
If the time has come for you to create an estate plan but you don’t know where to begin, you’re not alone. 1 out of 4 Americans are in charge of their family’s estate planning but say they’re not doing a good job of preparing, and 95% of people say they don’t have the financial expertise needed to create a plan on their own. Will, trust, and estate planning is a complicated field, and can be stressful considering the future of your family’s well-being depends on it.
Fortunately, you don’t need to go through the process by yourself. At Vishnick McGovern Milizio, LLP, our New York trust and estates attorneys have over 50 years of experience helping families across the U.S. protect their assets through comprehensive planning, and we’d like to help yours next.
Why Hire an Estate Attorney
Will, trust, and estate planning is a serious matter that shouldn’t be handled without a lawyer present. State laws are specific about what can and can’t be included in a trust, will, or power of attorney, and who can and can’t serve as a trustee or personal representative. Simple mistakes like these can be costly and time-consuming. You can do everything right the first time by hiring a team of experienced estate lawyers to preside over your planning.
While everyone should eventually consider hiring a trust and estate lawyer, you may be in dire need now if you:
- Have minor children
- Don’t have any children
- Were recently divorced
- Are in a second marriage
- Own one or more businesses
- Recently lost a spouse or family member
- Have assets in 401(k)s or IRAs
- Own real estate in more than one state
- Have a disabled family member
- Want to leave some or all of your assets to charity
Even if you think you don’t need to plan now, accidents and unfortunate circumstances can occur at any time. You need to be prepared for all possibilities. Our attorneys can protect your interests and your loved ones by helping you decide how you want your estate to be distributed. If you have minor children, you want to be confident in knowing where they’ll go if something happens to you. Real life doesn’t wait for people to get their affairs in order.
