At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we understand the importance of protecting your assets and ensuring that your wishes are carried out in the event of unforeseen circumstances. Our team of experienced attorneys specializes in creating legal documents that can provide peace of mind and security for you and your loved ones.
We offer a variety of legal documents, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advanced health care directives, and living wills. In this sales page, we will discuss the benefits and importance of each of these legal documents in detail.
A will is a legal document that outlines how you want your assets to be distributed after your death. It also allows you to appoint a guardian for your minor children and a personal representative to manage the distribution of your assets. Without a will, your assets may be distributed according to state laws, which may not align with your wishes.
Creating a will with the help of an experienced attorney can ensure that your wishes are carried out and that your loved ones are provided for. At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, our attorneys will work with you to create a comprehensive and personalized will that meets your individual needs and goals.
A trust is a legal arrangement in which a person (the grantor) transfers ownership of their assets to another person (the trustee) to hold and manage for the benefit of a third person (the beneficiary). Trusts can be used for a variety of purposes, including avoiding probate, reducing taxes, and providing for the care of minor children or dependents.
At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we offer a range of trust options, including revocable and irrevocable trusts, charitable trusts, and special needs trusts. Our attorneys will work with you to determine the best type of trust for your individual situation and help you create a trust that meets your goals and protects your assets.
A power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone else to make decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so yourself. This person, known as your "attorney-in-fact" or "agent," will have the legal authority to handle your financial and legal affairs in accordance with your wishes.
There are two types of powers of attorney: durable and non-durable. A durable power of attorney remains in effect even if you become incapacitated, while a non-durable power of attorney is only valid for a specific period of time or for a specific purpose. It's important to carefully consider which type of power of attorney is right for you and to choose an agent who is trustworthy and capable of making decisions on your behalf.
At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we can help you create a power of attorney that is tailored to your specific needs and ensures that your wishes will be respected. We'll work with you to determine the scope of your agent's authority and provide guidance on choosing the right person for the job.
An advanced health care directive, also known as a medical power of attorney or a health care proxy, is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone to make medical decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so yourself. This document is particularly important if you are at risk of losing mental capacity due to a medical condition, such as Alzheimer's disease or dementia.
An advanced health care directive allows you to choose who will make decisions about your medical care if you are unable to do so. This person, known as your health care agent or proxy, will be responsible for making decisions about your medical treatment, including life support and other end-of-life care.
A living will is a legal document that outlines your wishes for medical treatment in the event that you are unable to make decisions for yourself. This document is particularly important for individuals who have a terminal illness or are in a vegetative state and unable to communicate their wishes.
A living will can include instructions for a wide range of medical treatments, including life support, artificial hydration and nutrition, and organ donation. It can also specify who you want to make decisions on your behalf if you are unable to do so yourself.
Creating a living will allows you to have a say in your medical treatment, even if you are unable to communicate your wishes. It can also provide peace of mind to your loved ones, who may otherwise be left to make difficult decisions without your guidance.
At Legacy Wealth Estate Planning Attorneys, we can help you create a living will that accurately reflects your wishes and meets all legal requirements. We will work with you to understand your specific needs and ensure that your living will is tailored to your unique situation.
