Estate Planning


Estate Planning Law

When you reach out for legal assistance, you expect to get the absolute best at every turn for the expense. And, you should, especially when it comes to estate planning. After all, it’s the future of all you’ve built after you’re gone. Shouldn’t you do all you can to ensure it goes where you wish it to, when you wish it to get there? Yes, you should and Nery & Richardson, LLC can help you with overall estate planning that enables you to rest easy knowing all will be well after you’ve passed. We’ll help you make sound decisions that will have a lasting impact on those who rely on you – be it your family, your business partners or employees, or even your pets.

What Estate Planning Can Do

The estate planning attorneys at Nery & Richardson, LLC can assist you with planning for the day when you’ll no longer be here to take care of all the things you’re responsible for. They can make it easier on you and those you leave behind by ensuring that every “i” is dotted and “t” crossed. Estate planning allows you to:

  • Give directives for passing your valuables on to those you choose, as well as your values.
  • Provide instructions for your personal care should you become disabled before you pass on.
  • Name the guardian you wish to care for your minor children and an inheritance manager to direct how any valuables, property, or currency gets paid out over time.
  • Provide for family members with special needs without complicating or invalidating existing government benefits.
  • Establish the right insurance policies to protect you and your family before and after your death, such as life insurance to provide for your family after you’re gone, disability insurance to help if you cannot work, and long-term care insurance to prepare for that eventuality.
  • Ensure the safe transfer of your business ventures upon retirement, disability, or death
  • Protect your estate from tax burdens, court costs and legal fees after your death.
  • Regularly update your estate plan to include your current family and financial circumstances.
