Estate planning is a personal process that raises many emotional issues regarding family concerns and wealth preservation. The goal of the attorneys at FCW&S is to be sensitive and empathetic to the emotional aspects of estate planning. We listen to the goals and objectives of our clients regarding their desire to plan for their future and care of their family. We assist our clients in being good stewards of the wealth that they accumulate and assist them in creating a legacy for their future generations.
During the estate planning process, a client is educated on the benefits of estate planning, which includes avoiding probate, minimizing taxes, providing for the care of minor children, and ensuring that all of their assets and wealth are preserved and protected. In a confidential and comfortable setting, clients disclose their needs and concerns and are guided by our experienced and knowledgeable attorneys. Following an analysis and discussion, we provide our clients with a comprehensive estate plan. These documents typically include a will, a trust, a durable power of attorney for financial matters, and a patient advocate designation for medical issues. The estate plan is customized for each client and explained in plain English. Our goal is to assist our estate planning clients in achieving a peace of mind in knowing that their personal matters and financial affairs will be appropriately handled upon their death or disability.
