Estate planning is becoming increasingly important as the “baby boom” generation gets older. It is vital that you have a plan in place as to how you will be cared for as you age, how decisions will be made regarding your medical care, and how your assets will eventually be divided amongst your heirs. While no one likes to think of such finalities, the failure to have a proper plan can mean infighting amongst your loved ones, the risk that you will be cared for in a way which is inconsistent with your wishes, and the risk that your assets will be divided in a way you would not approve. Hiring an experienced lawyer is vital to making sure your later years are spent enjoying life and not worrying about the future. Our Hartford, Connecticut estate planning attorneys have over seventy-five years of combined legal experience. We pride ourselves on providing quality service and are ready to assist you. We also assist those in Wethersfield, New Britain, Rocky Hill, and elsewhere in the state.
Hartford attorneys assisting with the creation of plans for asset division and future medical care
Unfortunately, far too many Americans do not have a last will and testament or other documents which would provide a plan for their later years. The creation of an estate plan should not be seen as something that you will do at some date in the future. Items included in a proper estate plan can include:
- A last will and testament
- A living trust
- A power of attorney (both medical and financial)
- A conservatorship
- A designation of guardian
Retaining an experienced lawyer to help you with these issues can help to ensure that your affairs are in order. This can allow you to focus on the most important things – your family and your future. Do not make the mistake of thinking that you can deal with such issues “later.”
Our Hartford attorneys will use your initial consultation to gain an understanding of your situation. We will then work to formulate a plan that fits your specific needs. This work will include a review of your financial records, and a discussion of your wishes, how you would like future matters to be handled, and who you trust to handle such affairs. We will help you to consider issues which you may not otherwise have thought of. Our firm will then draft the documents necessary to carry out those wishes. We understand that such decisions have serious consequences. We will take your case seriously. Contact us today.
