Estate Planning and Probate
Estate planning is not only for the very old or the very wealthy. Most adults, regardless of age or economic status, should have an estate plan. The primary purpose of an estate plan is the orderly
management and transfer of property. It should also address the needs we face if we become incompetent or critically ill. By voluntarily appointing a conservator and a health care representative to manage property and health care decisions in the event of serious illness or injury, we can avoid the unneeded stress on loved ones in the event there is a need to have a conservator appointed or a health care representative to make medical decisions or to effectuate a living will. None of us plan on becoming disabled, becoming incompetent, or passing away. However, we should all have plans in place if such an event occurs. By planning ahead, your family and loved ones will be relieved of certain burdens, financial costs, and gain peace of mind that your plans and desires will be carried out without causing unneeded stress and conflict among family members. At the Law Office of Andrew J. Pianka, LLC, we take the time up front to get to know our clients and to really understand their estate planning needs so that we can create the unique, individualized estate plan that will achieve the best results for the client and their beneficiaries.
