WHY ELDER LAW ATTORNEY
With so many laws constantly changing, it is very easy to become overwhelmed. One wrong decision can have a devastating and costly effect on the interests of your elder. It is absolutely imperative to plan in advance for your senior's retirement and protect their and your futures and assets.
What most people fail to understand is that writing a Will or creating a Trust is really not about you at all. It is about helping your loved ones at a time when they are most vulnerable. Recently conducted survey shows that close to 65% of Americans either do not have a will or a trust or it is outdated. You would not want to put your family through the administrative turmoil that comes with dying without a valid and up to date will or any legal trust instrument.
The common misconceptions such as "I don't have assets, so I don't need a will or trust" or "It is obvious who will be receiving my assets anyway" often create a nightmare for the those you loved the most, your family. Moreover, leaving your loved ones intestate (without a will or a trust) can divide a family members when it comes time to distribution of assets.
