If you are wondering how to protect assets for your family in the event of your passing, or if you want to make sure that your wishes regarding your end-of-life care are honored should you become incapacitated, you are already dealing with estate planning issues. As a dedicated Alabama estate planning firm, Sadberry Law Office, LLC, can help you and your loved ones secure peace of mind when it comes to managing your assets and end-of-life medical concerns.
Alabama Estate Planning Lawyer
I have helped many Alabama families create wills and trusts, establish advance medical directives, prepare durable power of attorneys, and navigate the probate court process. I’m proud of my reputation for building enduring relationships with my clients and their families, helping them shield their assets and maintain their dignity in the event of a tragedy.
The Importance of a Strategic Estate Plan
Having a well-prepared estate plan means eliminating uncertainties about how your property will be distributed among your remaining family members or other beneficiaries. If your financial situation is fairly uncomplicated, a simple will may the best tool for accomplishing this; if, however, the nature of your estate requires a more sophisticated approach, a trust may be the best way to handle your financial affairs, especially if you want to continue to manage your estate while you are still alive or avoid the time and expense of probate court. As a skilled Alabama estate planning attorney, I can discuss the advantages and disadvantages of either approach with you and help you and your family decide on a comprehensive estate plan that best suits your needs. Additionally, if you have questions about what rights you have when it comes to medical care at the end of your life, or in the event that you become disabled, I can assist you in establishing the advance health care directive and durable power of attorney necessary to safeguard your rights and honor your wishes.
Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late
It’s not unusual for families to avoid estate planning issues until the last moment, but this procrastination may severely reduce what a decedent ultimately leaves their heirs as well as exacerbate family tensions concerning end-of-life care. This is all avoidable when you partner with an estate planning attorney and make a comprehensive plan.
