Estate and succession planning is critical to minimize the payment of taxes and fees by your estate and the stress your family could experience if you do not organize your affairs. Having properly drafted Powers of Attorney will ensure that if you ever become incapable of making important decisions about your property or your personal care, those decisions will be made by someone you choose, not the government or the Court.

Most of us know that we need a Will, yet many of us do not have one. Making an estate plan does not have to be expensive, complicated or stressful.

The decisions you make regarding your estate plan will determine how your property will be divided and what estate taxes will need to be paid after your passing. Be sure that your wishes are carried out by consulting with WARDS LAWYERSPC today.

WARDS LAWYERSPC is here to provide you with sound, knowledgeable, and practical advice about your estate plan and ensuring that your family and loved ones are taken care of and protected.

Wills and Powers of Attorney

Wills are not only for the wealthy.

Having an up-to-date and properly drafted estate plan is critical to ensure that your estate will be distributed according to your wishes, regardless of the value of your estate.

A Will can help reduce estate administration costs and minimize the burden on your Estate Trustee and beneficiaries.

At WARDS LAWYERSPC, we will help you to determine your estate planning objectives and assist you in ensuring your wishes are executed in an organized and timely fashion.

Instead of leaving such important decisions to the Court, get the assistance you need to make practical and smart decisions concerning your estate. At WARDS LAWYERSPC, our team is dedicated to helping you through every step of your estate planning.

Our services include:

  • Drafting a will
  • Creating a living trust
  • Creating business, education, retirement, and other trusts
  • Drawing up health care and general powers of attorney

Estate Administration

If someone passes, life can get complicated for immediate family members and friends. The estate's assets must be catalogued, certain debts may need to be paid and the remaining assets must be distributed to the estate's beneficiaries or heirs. These tasks may require probate, which can complicate the process in significant ways.

At WARDS LAWYERSPC, we provide complete range of estate administration services. These services and the advice we provide are designed to resolve the estate's outstanding issues and distribute assets as quickly, efficiently and as cost-effectively as possible.

If you have been appointed as Estate Trustee of an estate, WARDS LAWYERSPC can assist you with all aspects of the administration of that estate.
