Estate Plans Are All About Protecting Loved Ones
Keep Your Plan Current
The Importance of Powers of Attorney
Estate planning is all about protecting you, your spouse, and your children and grandchildren as you age. Revocable Living Trust arrangements and Powers of Attorney can protect you while you’re alive but no longer able to manage your own affairs effectively. Valid Trusts and Wills ensure that at your death your assets pass to the beneficiaries you choose; without an estate plan the courts will often decide who gets your assets. Our elder abuse litigators see too many surviving spouses and children suffer because a current plan or a valid Power of Attorney with a trusted agent was not in place before a senior loved one became incapacitated. The estate planning team at Evans Law Firm, Inc. can work with you to develop the estate plan and Power of Attorney arrangements that are best for you. Call us today at (415)441-8669.
Whether your estate plan is simple or more complex, our lawyers will help you identify all the issues that may pertain to your particular situation. We will address concerns you may have about disposing of your estate and advise what steps you need to take to ensure that your assets pass to those you want to have them. Advance planning is critical here; too often our litigators see the damage to family and loved ones where there isn’t a valid Will or trust in place that accurately reflects the decedent’s wishes. It’s also important to have a trusted individual as your Power of Attorney executed before you could become unable to do so. Greedy caregivers and others strike quickly when older persons start to fail without having a trusted agent already qualified to act on their behalf. You can save your family a lot of heartache and loss by having a valid estate plan and Power of Attorney in place before your death.
