As we know, the holidays are a time for family and friends, when people travel far and wide to be with loved ones. With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s important to plan for the unexpected.

If you were injured in an accident and could no longer make decisions for yourself, who would you want to manage your finances and manage your affairs? Who would make healthcare decisions for you? If you and your significant other were no longer here, who would you want to take care of your children? What about your pets?

Although it can be unpleasant to think about these scenarios, it’s important to plan for them before disaster strikes. Otherwise, you may leave your loved ones in a mess of uncertainty as they’re forced to navigate the costly probate court system. Probate administration and conservatorships cost tens of thousands of dollars and can result in unnecessary delay for your family members.

Proper estate planning can spare your loved ones unnecessary heartache and expense and can ensure that your wishes are properly carried out. When it comes to family, everybody has different concerns. Perhaps you have a child with special needs or family members who don’t get along. Whatever your family dynamic is, an estate planning attorney can help devise a solution that addresses your unique needs.

Although estate planning is not always the easiest thing to discuss, I strive to make the planning process as painless and straightforward as possible. I underline to all clients that they are the ones in charge, and it is my job to help ensure their wishes come to fruition and give them peace of mind.
