Law Offices Of E. John Damasco
After death your assets must go through probate court in order to be distributed to your family unless you have an estate plan. Probate can be a costly process. In some instances it may require a cost greater than the value of what you had intended to pass to your family. By creating an estate plan now you help your family avoid what can be extremely burdening legal costs to have your assets go through probate. Additionally, estate plans allow you to plan for the future. In the event that you fall ill and are unable to make decisions on your own behalf your desires regarding your healthcare will have been placed in writing and will be followed. Your family will not be burdened by the uncertainty that they are making a decision you wouldn't want but rather can rest assured that your express desires are being committed.
We create the entire Estate Plan. This will include your Trust, Will, Power of Attorney and Advanced Health Care Directive. We want to insure that your beneficiaries will not be paying costs or fees when you pass away.
