Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts and Probate

Establishing an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect you and your family. Proper estate planning not only puts you in charge of your finances, it can also spare your loved ones of the expense, delay and frustration associated with managing your affairs when you pass away or become disabled. One of the basics of proper estate planning is to determine whether a Will or Living Trust is best for your specific circumstances. A well-crafted estate plan provides for you and your loved ones with the ability to avoid expensive guardianship proceedings during your lifetime, probate at death, estate taxes and unnecessary delays. Once your estate plan is in place, you will have peace of mind knowing that you have provided for yourself and your family in case the worst happens. Though Sells Law Firm no longer performs these services, we are happy to provide a referral to an experienced attorney who can best assist you with your estate planning and probate administration needs.
