Estate Planning

Estate Planning Lawyer in Tempe

Helping Families in the East Valley (Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, & Scottsdale) & Pinal County

It’s a common misconception that you don’t need to think about estate planning until much later in life. We try to remind our clients that it’s important to have a plan in place, regardless of your age, should the inevitable happen sooner than expected. Creating an estate plan is important for anyone who has assets they wish to pass on, whether they have a modest or large estate. With an estate plan in place, you can ensure that your assets are protected and distributed according to your exact wishes.

To make sure you have the proper plans in place, you'll need the advice of an experienced estate planning attorney who can answer all your questions. From preparing wills or powers of attorney to creating trusts and planning for estate tax issues, we can help you personalize a strategic plan of action to ensure your wishes are respected and your loved ones are taken care of.

Estate Planning Raises Many Questions

Estate planning is just like any other kind of planning. It requires looking closely at what you have in front of you and what you’re trying to accomplish and outlining the necessary steps to reach those goals. We have over three decades of experience helping individuals and families with their estate planning needs.

We are confident that we can help you with all matters involving your estate plan, including:

  • Wills: By establishing a will, you achieve many objectives, including choosing how your wealth and assets are distributed after your death.
  • Trusts: We can help you establish trusts that protect your assets, provide for your loved ones, and meet other important legal and financial objectives.
  • Powers of attorney: You can choose a trusted person to make important decisions about your estate on your behalf in the event you become incapacitated.
