Protecting The Assets For Which You Worked So Hard To Obtain
Please do not leave your long-term financial planning to chance. Without a plan in place, assets you wish to leave to your loved ones may be lost due to taxation and administrative expense. Should you die without a valid will, the assets of your estate may end up distributed to unintended beneficiaries. There may also be concerns regarding having money available to cover medical care in the event a disability arises. Without documentation in place, all of your savings may be lost to medical expense.
The attorneys at Honig & Barnes LLP provide affordable and personalized estate family services to make the entire process of transferring assets to your loved ones go smoothly. As no estate plan will fit every circumstance, we get to know your situation before taking any action or putting together any legal strategy. If you already have an existing estate plan, we will review it to determine whether any changes are necessary.
