Taking care of your family and loved ones after you're gone. That's what Estate Planning is fundamentally all about. You can protect them by working with a knowledgeable and understanding attorney to create the legal documents required to ensure that the people who depend on you will be taken care of in uncertain times.
Without an Estate Plan the laws of the state where you resided at your passing will make these decisions for you. These laws will almost certainly produce a result that is very different from what you would have chosen.
You can also plan out who will make decisions for you - financially, medically, and otherwise - in circumstances where you cannot act for yourself. What type of end-of-life care medical care do you want? Who should make medical decisions if you are not able to do so? Is there anyone who is legally able to act for you when you cannot? With a Comprehensive Estate Plan, you decide.
Jeremy Canipe is privileged to regularly counsel and advise families as they work through these difficult questions. He takes the time necessary to understand your specific situation, to answer your questions, and then recommends a customized plan to see that your plan to take care of your family and loved ones after you are gone is set down and will be followed.
