What you Need to Know About Estate Planning

The unpleasant but inevitable question "What will happen when I die?" makes the topic and preparation for estate planning something most people try to avoid. But relief is found once the difficult question is considered and a basic plan is set in place. That is why choosing the right attorney is a must! The Glendale Estate Planning Lawyers at Platt & Westby, P.C., have been practicing nearly 40 years working with individuals to formulate a plan to fit their individual needs.

Estate planning is the way to ensure you and your families' financial goals are met after you pass away. What is termed "Estate Planning." has several parts. This includes: a will, a trust (if the total assets require one), assignment of a power of attorney, and a living will or medical power of attorney. No matter your net worth it is important to have a basic plan in place.

The golden rule is everybody needs a will. A will is a persons greatest strength after death and puts the world on notice as to an individuals wishes. Dying without a will, or "intestate" leaves no control or say over the distribution of assets and could be very costly to heirs. A will is also where guardians are named for small children. In addition, depending on personalized estate plans, a trust may be a good tool to protect assets from creditors and lawsuits while placing conditions on the distribution of assets. It is also important to discuss estate plans with descendants and heirs so there is no confusion upon death. A good estate plan protects you, your assets and your beneficiaries. Let our experienced and skilled Attorneys analyze your personal needs and formulate a plan for you.
