There are many reasons to have an attorney draft a will or trust, but your family is one of the most critical. Having these documents in place means that your family will know your desires if something happens to you. It means that potential heirs will be less likely to become involved in disputes over assets, and it means that the people you love will have an easier time making important medical and financial decisions on your behalf, should you ever lose the ability to speak for yourself.
At the Jackson, Michigan, law firm of Abbott, Thomson, Mauldin, Parker & Beer, PLC our attorneys draft wills and trusts for people throughout south-central Michigan. Our clients include older individuals and couples seeking to plan for the future, as well as families with young children who want the added protection and control of a trust when considering their children's futures. Trusts protect their beneficiaries from taxes and creditors. Accordingly, trusts are a wise choice in many different situations, especially when minors are involved.
Experienced Lawyers Drafting Wills and Trusts
Our lawyers draft wills that allow families to designate personal representatives who will handle their estates. Wills provide guidance to personal representatives, outlining how assets should be divided. Wills can also provide guidance as to how children should be cared for in the event of the loss of both parents. Through a will, guardians can be identified, trusts can be created for minors, and funeral and cremation plans can also be outlined.
We also draft revocable trusts, irrevocable life insurance trusts and special needs trusts. These tools can protect assets and ensure money is available to assist trust beneficiaries.
