An estate plan is imperative to ensuring that your property and assets are distributed after your death according to your wishes. If you have children or are in a non-traditional relationship (such as a domestic partnership), an estate plan can protect your loved ones and makes sure that your property is dispersed

An estate plan is not merely a piece of paper on which you write how you wish for your estate to be divided and arranged. Documents such as wills need to be signed in the presence of witnesses and you should retain the help of an experienced estate planning attorney to ensure your wills and trusts are legally sound. At Anderson and Associates, P.C., we work relentlessly to ensure our clients' interests and property are protected.

Why Do I Need an Estate Plan?

Estate planning means to manage a person's property and assets and to develop a plan to distribute them in the event of that person's death or incapacitation. An estate includes both real and personal property. Real property includes land and buildings while personal property refers to property such as money, insurance policies, cars, jewelry, and any other items that are not considered to be personal property. With a proper estate plan put in place, you can decide how your real and personal property will be administered as well as:

  • Make sure that your minor children will have a legal guardian of your choosing after your death.
  • Make sure your property and assets are given to people of your choosing.
  • Reduce tension and conflict among your family members.
  • Ensure your loved ones receive your property.

Our estate planning attorneys aid clients with:

  • Estate administration: The settlement and distribution of the estates of an individual who dies without a will or trust.
  • Wills: Documents that describe how a person's property will be distributed and to whom the property will be distributed to after the person's death.
  • Trusts: Agreements that detail how assets will be managed for another individual's benefit.
  • Probate: Proving in court that a will or testament is legally valid.
  • Power of Attorney: A strong estate plan should specify who will make financial and health decisions for you in the event that you are mentally and physically incapacitated.
