Elder Care Law: Estate Planning

Estate planning lets you establish an advantageous plan for handling your affairs and assets. A well-executed estate plan not only lets you make decisions about what should happen after your passing – it also lets you specify your wishes and manage your assets during your later years and make provisions in case you are incapacitated.

The importance of estate planning for financial and legal reasons can hardly be overstated, and you should seek the counsel of experienced estate planning attorneys to ensure it is done properly.

Elder law attorneys Amanda and Archie Speights can advise you on the relevant legal issues and help with all aspects of your estate plan, including the establishment of your will, creation of a revocable or living trust, and preparation of a living will, also known as an advance health care directive or health care proxy.

Speights Law can also assist with long-term care estate planning, Medicaid planning, special needs trusts, veterans aid, qualified income trusts and other asset protection measures.

Our estate planning lawyers can discuss topics like how you might pay for nursing home care, the specifics of long-term care insurance plans, who will care for minor children or special needs adult beneficiaries, who should have power of attorney, and more. We take the time to learn your particular wants and needs and craft the right plan for you.

Don’t roll the dice on your future and that of your closest family by putting off your estate planning until it’s too late. Call us today and get the peace of mind that comes with having a well-established plan for the future.
