 Estate Law
You may have had conversations with your loved ones about who you would like to make responsible for your personal health care and for the assets in your estate. Unless you have these details outlined in legal documents, however, those conversations alone do little to ease the burden for your loved ones.
We at Maitland & English Law Firm, PLLC, help clients in preventing and resolving disputes with thoughtful estate law representation. Our primary goal in estate planning, probate, and estate administration is to determine our clients’ specific goals and to address them comprehensively with consideration for the challenges that many other attorneys often overlook. For example, many people fail to consider the tax implications of estate gifts as they plan to leave income to their loved ones after they pass away. In these situations, setting up trusts or other asset protection mechanisms can help reduce the amount of taxes your heirs or beneficiaries end up facing as the result of estate gifts.
We also aim to reduce the potential for will contests and other legal disputes that often arise as the result of incomplete or out-of-date estate planning documents. Sometimes people draft these documents early in life, but as they have more children, get divorced, get remarried or acquire new assets, they fail to update them. As a result, many issues become the subject of disputes.
