Estate Planning Attorney in St. Petersburg

We Can Help Make Your Estate Planning as Painless as Possible

Many think Estate Planning is only for the wealthy. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Estate planning is important for everybody, regardless of wealth.  An estate planning attorney can provide you with many estate planning options. The list of legal services that encompass estate planning are many, including Last Will; Trust; Living Will; Power of Attorney; Healthcare Surrogate; Declaration of Pre-Need Guardian; and, Life Estate Deed. An estate planning lawyer can help you determine which of these are applicable to, and best fit your estate planning needs.

Advance Directives and Testamentary Documents

Many people have questions about the whole concept of estate planning. There are basically two categories of estate planning documents. The first category of estate planning involves “Advance Directives”. These are documents which are set-up in “advance” to direct who will handle things for you if you are unable to do so for yourself. These include the Power of Attorney and Durable Power of Attorney; Designation of Healthcare Surrogate; and Declaration of Pre-Need Guardian. The second category of estate planning involves planning for what will happen to your assets after you die. These documents include, for example, the Last Will & Testament; Trust; Living Trust; and Life Estate Deed a/k/a Lady Bird Deed. Some of these documents can be complicated and nuanced to set up properly, and improper planning, or no planning at all, can be very costly to you or your loved ones down the road, which is why it is very important to find an estate planning attorney with the experience to set up the right plan for you. Proper estate planning can be very affordable and painless, while improper estate planning can lead to burdensome and costly legal problems for your loved ones.
