Comprehensive Estate Planning Services
Our attorneys work as a team combining their unique experience and knowledge to guide our clients with their estate planning, administration and probate needs. A complete estate plan may include a combination of some or all of the following:
- A simple, complex or pour-over will
- One or more powers of attorney
- A health care directive
- One or more trusts
For young adults, a simple will may be a logical place to start on an estate plan, but other components may also be critically important. For example, without a health care directive, family members and health care providers might struggle to determine the best course of action in case of a medical emergency such as an aneurysm or a serious car accident affecting an adult of any age. For couples or single adults with substantial assets, dependent or beloved family members and/or favorite charitable causes, a more robust estate plan can provide peace of mind and save time and effort at a difficult time for a family.
Clear Direction In Probate
Executors (personal representatives) of estates often face a difficult path as they administer complex estates. Even the estates of nonwealthy people can be complex with considerations including the following:
- Real estate
- Investment accounts
- Pending debts, including final medical bills
- Costs associated with administering an estate
- Final tax returns
- Blended families
- Business assets
Ask our estate administration lawyers in Washington, D.C., about a revocable living trust, special needs trust or any type of trust that matches your intentions for the disposition of your estate after your death.
