Proper estate planning often includes a last will and testament, allowing the party to make known their final wishes regarding property, disposition of remains, and instructions for the personal representative.
Depending on the estate of the client, trusts may be beneficial for minimizing tax exposure, avoiding probate, and ensuring a seemless transition of one's property or business interest to a successor.
Proper preparation of medical documents help clarify a party's wishes regarding treatment if they are incapacitated, as well as facilitate additional processes like paying bills and handling property.
Almost always, an estate requires probate administration after death. This can require extensive work, record-keeping, and working with the probate court, often best performed by a licensed attorney.
