23 Legal LLC: The Full Range of Estate Planning
Estate attorneys do much more than create wills. For example, we work in the area of elder law. Elder law frequently deals with long-term care of a parent. We want to ensure that your parents or a surviving parent is taken care of in the years ahead. This too is accomplished by estate planning to safeguard their assets by placing those resources in a living trust.
At the other end of the age range, estate planning can appoint guardians for your minor-aged children should you prematurely die or become incapacitated – even if the incapacitation is temporary. No one likes to talk about these things; we can understand that. We would all rather talk about next Sunday’s football game or that trendy new Italian restaurant.
However, we can’t pretend that bad things only happen to other people or to other people’s parents. What we can do is to try to make sure that if something does happen that our estate, our children or even a surviving parent is protected and will have a good life.
