The average American can expect to live to be nearly 85 years old. While that’s good news, it can also be scary to think about. Do you have enough savings and other financial resources to support yourself for another 20 years or more? If you or your spouse has to go into a nursing home, will you be able to pay for that and still leave something to your children and grandchildren? Without an estate plan that addresses your unique situation, these are very real concerns. However, when you work with Legacy Lawyers to plan for the future or in a time of crisis, you can be sure we will find a creative solution to protect your assets.
We Are in the Counseling Business
Anyone can charge you to prepare some documents and claim you have an estate plan. In fact, you can even download many of these forms from the internet for free. However, one-size-fits-all approaches to estate planning can’t possibly address your unique needs and desires for the future. At Legacy Lawyers, we are not in the document sales business. Instead, our goal is to be a trusted advisor to our clients as they go through the process of determining what kind of legacy they want to leave and how they are going to pay for long-term care without using their hard-earned savings. We will get to know you as we craft a custom-designed plan to:
- Name your beneficiaries and designate when they should have access to the funds
- Make sure creditors, predators, and the IRS don’t get ahold of your assets after you are gone
- Protect your life savings from the exorbitant cost of a nursing home
- Plan for dependents with special needs, earmark donations to charities, and more
No two of our estate plans are the same because each is uniquely tailored to our individual client’s needs.
