What is an estate plan? Typically people who talk about an estate plan are talking about preparations for late life matters and/or at the time of death. The plan will be made up of a series of documents, each designed to perform a certain function, and all of them together to create the ultimate goal of the individual or family. A typical estate plan will involve a Power of Attorney, to prepare for asset management and/or medical decisions, a Living Will, a Last Will and Testament, a Trust, and/or an entity such as a Limited Liability Company (L.L.C.). The appropriate combination of documents needed will depend entirely on your current situation and your desires. We have years of experience helping set clients up with perfectly understandable and functional estate plans.
