Using an Estate Planning Attorney

Estate planning entails the steps that are legally required for one to ensure that their property and any health care wishes will be honored, and that any loved ones will be provided for in the event of one’s passing.  Estate planning includes issues such as health directives, wills, living wills, trusts, and the probate process.   Because estate planning involves very important medical and financial decisions, it is best to find and work with an experienced estate-planning attorney.

A good estate planning attorney will help you understand your financial position, how to execute a loved one’s wishes in a Will, how best to notify and work with relatives, and also assist with the overall management of your affairs. For tips on how to find and hire an estate-planning attorney and what to ask when meeting with your new attorney, explore the corresponding sections.
