Common Sense Advice For Your Ohio Estate Planning Needs
No one likes to think about worst-case scenarios. When considering what will happen to your possessions, assets and wishes when you die, proper planning makes all the difference. When done thoughtfully and carefully, estate planning can ensure that your estate is managed efficiently when the time comes. You could now have the chance to designate who will receive your belongings and plan for the unexpected should you become ill or incapacitated.
A thoughtful estate plan can be a tremendous comfort to surviving loved ones, even giving closure with this final thoughtful gesture. If done correctly, it puts less strain on those who administer the estate plan, reduces taxes owed and generally helps the process go more smoothly.
At Hurley Law, our experienced attorneys can offer seasoned guidance throughout the process of protecting and preserving your estate in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area. We understand how sensitive these issues can be, and our lawyers will treat your family like their own when guiding you through the estate planning process.
Preparing For The Unexpected
Our attorneys have a long history of working with individuals, families and businesses across Ohio on estate planning matters. Estate planning includes preparing for the possibility of a debilitating illness, injury or disability that could prevent you from making critical health care or financial decisions on your own.
We can assist with a range of estate planning considerations, including:
- Living wills or health care directives
- Powers of attorney
- Irrevocable and revocable trusts
Estate plans are entirely dependent on your goals, as well as on the complexity of your estate. While a will is often the foundation of an estate plan, it may be in your best interests to incorporate other planning tools and documents.
We understand that an estate plan has more purposes than simply transferring your property to the next generation. You may want to consider the tax implications that your estate could have, how to preserve your legacy, the possibility of your estate going through probate court and more. Whatever your goals may be, we can assist in achieving them.
Using creative problem-solving and practical legal guidance, Hurley Law and our team of attorneys handle each case with the individualized attention you and your family deserve.
