What is Estate Planning?
Estate Planning is a gift for your loved ones. Plan ahead for their comfort and protection instead of leaving them with messy unfinished business. Estate Planning helps you get organized and includes a number of instruments to carry out your wishes like wills, trusts, powers of attorney, health care directives (living wills), and guardianship nominations for your children.
Document factory or trusted advisor?
There are lawyers and websites that offer cheap options to create your will and other Estate Planning documents. But is it enough? Do you have all the information you need to select the right options? Do you really want to trust your final wishes to a document machine instead of a trusted advisor?
At Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates we view documents to be a byproduct of our relationship with our clients. The value of an Estate Planning attorney is not just the documents we produce but the advice and guidance we offer, both now and if your family needs us in the future.
Every family, every estate is unique. Boilerplate, one-size-fits-all Estate Planning is not enough for most people. Instead, we offer customized solutions that fit with your values and goals. We will structure your estate so that your family’s inheritance, unique bequests, charitable donations, and other directives are carried out in accordance with your wishes. We will be available to provide services for years to come, so that your when life changes, your Estate Planning will follow. Customized instruments like wills and trusts will help keep your family out of probate court and avoid unnecessary tax burdens.
The price of an outdated estate plan
Life is unpredictable. In the event of your untimely death or incapacity, planning now will keep your loved ones from having to deal with the chaos of complicated accounting, digital assets, unfinished business, and medical decisions.
