You are working hard for your family, but have you planned ahead?

While it is difficult to know what’s around the corner, it is wise to implement a sound estate plan. A well-crafted trust, possibly in combination with a compatible will, provides peace of mind in knowing your property will go directly into the right hands in the event of death or incapacity. On the other hand, an absent or faulty estate plan has been known to lead to a protracted and expensive probate process and conflict among loved ones fighting over the holdings of the deceased.

Part of a sound estate plan would also include an Advance Health Care Directive and Durable Power of Attorney to provide for care in the event of incapacity.

Attorney Damir Kouliev and affiliated civil counsel Michael Garbarino would implement the appropriate legal tools to proactively plan ahead so as to avoid stress and expense for you and your loved ones.
