A good estate plan contemplates the expected and unexpected.  It ensures your estate planning needs will be met in a manner that protects you and what you value most:  your children, spouse, life partner, friends, pets, and favorite charities.

Please contact me for a free initial estate planning consultation to find out how Brooks Estate Law can help you.

The Law Exists to Protect You

An estate plan makes your wishes legally binding.  Without a legally valid estate plan, however, the default state laws are carried out without your input.  These laws guess at what your wishes may be, but those guesses become the governing rules for distributing your estate, for your health care decisions, and for naming guardians for your children.  The law’s guesses can lead to unintended consequences.  An estate plan will prevent that from that happening.

I will personally guide you through the process of creating an estate plan that addresses your unique needs.  I will then craft your estate plan so that your wishes are clear and legally enforceable.

I also provide estate administration services through probate or trust administration.

Probate is the legal process of carrying out a Will or transferring title to heirs when there is no Will.

Legal guidance can expedite the probate process, reduce stress, prevent costly errors, and protect you from being sued.

Trust Administration:

Trust administration is the legal process of carrying out a Trust.

It is simpler, faster, and less expensive than probate. Nonetheless, if you are a Successor Trustee who administers a Trust, you should retain an lawyer to assist you.
