estate planning attorneyAn estate planning attorney can help you ensure your family maintains their financial security in the event of your death. They are skilled at drafting wills, creating trusts, preparing health care directives and powers of attorney, establishing guardianship, and devising tax strategies to eliminate some of the burdens on your family after you pass. Most estate planning attorneys are also probate lawyers, which means they can assist families who have lost a loved one. All assets that pass through a will must go through the probate process.

If you want to create a will, you should look for a firm that has experience in estate planning, as opposed to one that offers general legal advice. You should also look for a compassionate attorney who makes you feel comfortable from the start because estate planning discussions are fairly personal. Ultimately, you need to find someone whom you trust enough to guide you in the right direction when it comes to protecting the best interests of your loved ones.
