Young parents use wills to name guardians and provide financial support for their minor children. Pet owners’ wills include designating pet caretakers and leaving them resources to care for their beloved animals.

2. To Manage Personal Injury Settlementsattorney

Estate planning lawyers assist individuals who have received personal injury settlements, judgments, or workers’ compensation awards with managing their assets. These attorneys use various investment strategies and tax shelters to maximize the benefits for their clients. 

3. To Create Trusts

Estate planning attorneys create trusts that shelter clients’ assets including real and personal property. The lawyers discuss their clients’ goals and use tools such as revocable living trusts, which owners can control or change until the owners die, and irrevocable trusts, which are permanent and help reduce taxes. Special needs trusts are effective for managing finances for loved ones with long-term care requirements. These special trusts also protect their rights to receive government benefits, such as Medicaid and SSI.
