The Firm’s Estate Planning Practice
Attorney Pemberton will take the time to listen carefully to learn the details of your financial situation, as well as your estate planning objectives. He will then help you understand the different strategies for passing on your estate, including the use of wills, the re-titling of assets to avoid probate, and lifetime gifts. Once you have determined the best approach for meeting your goals, he will prepare all the necessary documentation to put your estate plan in place, including wills, living wills and powers of attorney.
Don’t make the mistake of trying to do your own estate planning, using a form you found on the Internet. More often than not, something will not be done correctly and your loved ones will face needless expense and anxiety when you die.
