No matter your age or financial status, the importance of protecting the economic well-being of your family in the event of your death or disability is of crucial importance. Proper estate planning is not simply a matter of filling out a few forms; instead, it often involves complicated questions regarding real estate, business interests, and taxes. You owe it to yourself and your family to obtain quality legal advice to avoid costly mistakes. The attorneys at Fries Law Office have the estate planning expertise to guide you through the estate planning process and to give you peace of mind that you and your family are protected. We ask questions designed to make you aware of critical planning issues. Based on your responses, we then craft an individualized estate plan designed to meet your needs and the needs of your loved ones. Our experienced staff will meet with you to discuss in detail your estate planning needs and the best strategy to achieve your goals. Not only will we focus on your Will, but we will look at many other important aspects of estate planning, including guardianship provisions for your minor children, trusts, general powers of attorney, and durable health care powers of attorney (sometimes called Living Wills or Advance Directives).
If you have a family member with special needs or a permanent disability, our attorneys are experienced in drafting special needs trusts with detailed and appropriate provisions to protect your disabled family members. In addition, if you have family members who struggle with substance abuse or mental health issues, a special purpose trust may be appropriate. Our attorneys are experienced in drafting special purpose trusts to protect assets for the benefit of your dependent family members.
Please call us to schedule an appointment to personally assess your situation, and for our professional advice and assistance in developing and implementing your estate plan.
