Estate Planning

Estate planning can be a difficult issue for many people to face. We often procrastinate in planning for the disposition of our estates upon incapacity or death. But proper estate planning is essential in that it helps to provide security for your family and loved ones. Your estate planning documentation will establish guidance for those who will make the difficult decisions regarding your care and affairs should you become incapacitated. Your estate plan will designate who will receive your estate after your passing and who will be in charge of administering your estate.

At the Law Office of Burt E. Eisenberg, P.A., we understand the importance of estate planning to you and your family. That is why we take to time to learn from our clients what their individual goals and needs are so that comprehensive estate plans can be drafted. A properly drafted estate planning will address many issues including:

• Preservation of your wealth during and after your lifetime.
• Designating someone to manage your affairs for your benefit should you be unable to do so.
• Ensuring that, upon your death, your assets pass according to your wishes.
• Avoiding probate through use of a Trust or other means thereby removing property from the probate estate.
• Minimizing estate tax consequences in larger estates.
• Designation someone who will make medical and end of life decisions for you should you be unable to do so.

A properly drafted estate plan can minimize or eliminate the excessive costs which might otherwise be incurred should a guardianship or probate proceedings be required. There are a variety of estate planning tools that can be customized to suit your individual needs.  These include:

• Trusts
• Wills
• Durable Powers of Attorney
• Living Wills
• Designation of Health Care Surrogate
