ESTATE PLANNING

Simply put, an estate plan is the way you, as a client, plan for the future.  An estate plan is the means by which a person transfers his/her wealth to future generations.  An estate plan can be used to elect another to make financial decisions on your behalf in the event you are unable to do so.  If you have  young children, an estate plan gives you the opportunity to designate a guardian for your children in the event of your death.  Estate plans can also be used to avoid probate, to minimize estate taxes, to minimize the risk of future family conflict, and to provide for others who cannot care for themselves.  Without an estate plan, a court, in accordance with state law, may be responsible for deciding what will happen to your wealth and who will receive it upon your death, whether or not those are your wishes.  Through such devices as wills, trusts, powers of attorney for finances, Braiterman Law Offices assists individuals and families in providing for their financial futures and the future of their loved ones.

An estate plan can also allow you to direct who will make medical decisions if you become unable to do so yourself.  An estate plan lets you designate what treatments you want or do not want should you become terminally ill.  Braiterman Law Offices routinely prepares durable powers of attorney for health care and living wills so that individuals may formalize their wishes for medical care and treatment. 

To develop the estate plan that is right for you, Braiterman Law Offices will analyze your financial and personal situation, and work with you to design an estate plan to accomplish  your wishes.  We are also available to serve as executors and trustees for our clients.

Braiterman Law Offices offers simple estate planning documents (e.g., simple will, simple will with testamentary trust, standard durable powers of attorney for finances and for health care, standard living will, etc.), or simple estate planning packages for a reasonable, flat fee.  Discounts are offered for couples preparing documents together.  You may contact us for more information, or feel free to begin the process by printing our Estate Planning Client Questionnaire from this site and returning it to our office at your convenience. We'll be in touch to see how we can help shortly after.
