Developing Comprehensive Estate Planning Solutions

The importance of having a comprehensive estate plan in place cannot be overstated. Not only can a well-designed estate plan outline how you want your property distributed upon your death, but, if drafted clearly, can also prevent much of the infighting that often occurs among family members.

At Averbeck, Hammer & Slavin, S.C., we recognize that every person's estate planning needs are unique. As such, our dedicated legal professionals will work with you to understand your goals, and then recommend an individualized legal solution to help you achieve them. No matter what type of estate planning issue you need assistance with, we will sit down with you and take the time to explain the advantages and disadvantages of your various options.

Estate Planning Is More Than Just A Will

Even though most people think of wills when they hear the phrase estate planning, a comprehensive estate plan often involves so much more. In fact, there are several estate planning options we typically discuss with our clients, including:

  • Last wills and testaments
  • Powers of attorney
  • Creation of trusts
  • Guardianship provisions
  • Beneficiary designations
  • Strategic estate tax planning
  • Living wills and advance medical directives

It is important to remember, however, that further legal assistance may be needed even when a person has a comprehensive estate plan in place. For instance, estates may still have to go through probate, and any trusts created will need to be administered by a trustee.
