An Estate Plan Can Benefit People From All Walks Of Life

Many people mistakenly believe that an estate plan can only benefit the wealthy or those who are in the twilight years of their lives. The fact is, an estate plan can be useful for those with limited assets or for younger people, particularly young couples or parents.

A comprehensive estate plan involves more than simply distributing your assets after you have passed on. It can also outline your medical wishes should you ever become incapacitated, allow you to name a trusted guardian if you are unable to care for your children, or enable you to shelter your assets while also qualifying for long-term care assistance. Attorney Goode can employ a wide range of estate planning tools to help you best achieve your goals, including:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills
