Estate planning is a process that few people look forward to, yet it is a necessary part of planning for a sound financial future.
Estate plans – whether large or small, complex or simple -- encompass a variety of needs, from deciding who will inherit the fruits of your labor to establishing trusts; this also includes setting up powers of attorney to ensure that someone is making decisions in your best interests in the event that you are incapacitated due to illness or injury. At Jett Law LLC, I am experienced and knowledgeable about all types of estate plans, including:
By reviewing my clients’ financial and estate planning needs as a whole, I am able to design a comprehensive plan that addresses their goals. These goals may include avoiding the cost and time-consuming probate process through setting up revocable trusts or minimizing estate taxes and liability through irrevocable trusts. Special needs trusts can also be established to provide for family members who may not be able to take care of themselves after your death. I am also sensitive to helping my clients achieve their personal income needs as they approach retirement, preparation of wills, trusts, and other related documents in order to effectuate a solid estate plan. Important in this endeavor is the avoidance of probate, where possible, in order to avoid unnecessary costs and delay when the decedent passes.
