In times like ours, proper estate planning is essential. It’s the only way to ensure that the ones who matter most—your spouse, children, and other loved ones—are financially and legally protected in the event of an unexpected tragedy. At LeBaron Law, we make sure that your life savings are secure and that your wishes are respected in any contingency, whether it’s a life-altering disability, long-term hospitalization, or death.
When you come to us, we take the time to discuss the particulars of your case with you and talk to you about which of the many legal solutions available are the best fit for your goals. If you or your spouse has been married previously, we can craft a legal document that spells out exactly how you want to distribute your estate, avoiding messy family disputes. For families with young children, we can help you with assigning guardianship from someone you know and trust. If you have children or grandchildren with special needs, we help you plan your estate in a manner that doesn’t disqualify your loved ones from receiving benefits. Other ways we can assist you include minimizing estate taxes, avoiding probate, naming a professional fiduciary, and many more.
Estate planning isn’t just for the wealthy, it’s for parents who want to make sure their young children are taken care of and that their adult children receive their fair share of the inheritance. It’s for husbands and wives who want to be sure that their spouses are able to afford funeral expenses or hospital bills. It’s for anyone who wants peace of mind that comes from knowing that, in the event that something unexpected happens, your wishes will be carried out and your loved ones will be taken care of.
We can draft General Power of Attorney’s, Health Care Directives, Pour Over Wills and Living Trusts and other instruments as specially needed under the circumstances.
