Assistance With Estate Planning

An experienced will, trust & probate lawyer can help you plan your future. When you work with a dedicated legal team, you’ll know that your future is in good hands. The Crosby Law Firm will provide you with the trusted legal services that you need to ensure that your future is secure.

Taking the time now to plan your future will avoid some of the common pitfalls that people experience as they age. At the Crosby Law Firm, we take the time to get to know each and every client so we can best understand their planning needs. We treat every individual as the unique person that they are. An estate planning lawyer can ensure that your plan is carried out exactly as you want it to.

Why Do You Need an Estate Planning Lawyer?

An experienced wills lawyer can do much more than just prepare your will. Many people are familiar with wills, but they are unaware there are other estate planning issues that should be dealt with. However, once you meet with our estate planning lawyers, you will be exposed to all of the important factors within estate planning.
Documents and processes an estate planning lawyer can help you with include:

  • Living Trusts
  • Living Wills
  • Probate and trust administration
  • Health care power of attorney
  • Guardianship for minors and incapacitated adults
  • Other estate planning services

Why Everyone Needs an Estate Plan

A common misconception about estate planning is that it’s only important for wealthy families. However, this is far from the truth; if you have a family, then you must invest in estate planning. No one can predict what life has in store for them a decade down the road, and life can change direction at any moment. Having your estate well-planned will make sure everything is in place no matter what.

We understand that estate planning isn’t the most pleasant experience, and it’s difficult to think about the day when you will no longer be there for your family and friends. That’s why our attorneys take pride in working closely with you to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible. Putting a will or trust in place as needed will ensure your wishes are properly carried out, and will keep your family from having to make decisions on your behalf.

If you are injured or become incapacitated in any way, you will have the legally binding documents that will stand up in court to ensure that life continues as you wish. Even though you may have no reason to think this situation would ever happen, it’s well worth the investment to put the right precautions in place.

How Our Firm Can Help

Our trusted attorneys will help you prepare for the future and take the legal steps that you need to protect yourself and your family. We encourage everyone to talk to a wills, trusts and probate attorney as soon as possible to find out what they should be doing in the estate planning process.

When meeting with one of our attorneys to discuss your case, please gather & bring the following documents:

  • Will or trust documents
  • Deeds to all real property
  • Life insurance policies
  • Prior gift tax returns (if any)
  • Documents related to applications for public benefits (Medicaid, social security, etc.)
