It is crucial to plan for the future, and by creating an estate plan, you can take steps to make sure your family will be looked after, and you can set down your wishes regarding how certain issues will be handled throughout the rest of your life and after you pass away. As you determine how to put these plans in place, a qualified attorney can advise you of your options and make sure you take the correct steps to protect your rights and meet your family's needs.

At A. Traub & Associates, our skilled attorneys can assist you in matters related to estate planning and help you make sure your family will be provided for in the future. We will sit down with you, answer any questions or concerns you may have, and make sure everything is in order according to your wishes. This way, you can not only protect what is yours and pass your money and belongings to your loved ones, but you can also make sure your financial and medical needs will be met should anything happen to you during your lifetime.

Helping You Create a Comprehensive Estate Plan

At our law firm, we can help you address all aspects of estate planning and make sure all of your documents are in order. Our services include:

  • Creating wills and trusts - By drafting a last will and testament, you can detail how your assets will be distributed to your heirs and how other issues will be handled after you die. In addition to assisting with your will, we can help establish trusts, which can help protect assets and ensure that they can provide benefits for both you and your loved ones. We can provide guidance regarding multiple different types of trusts, including special needs trusts that may be used to address the needs of individuals who have disabilities or other special needs without affecting their ability to qualify for government benefits.
  • Powers of attorney - If you are concerned that you may become incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself, powers of attorney will allow you to appoint someone to manage your financial or medical affairs. We can help ensure that all necessary documents are in place regarding powers of attorney for both finances and healthcare.
  • Living wills - This legal document allows you to state your wishes for end-of-life medical care. This way, your loved ones and doctors will know how to proceed in the event of a terminal illness or injury in which you are unable to communicate your desires.
  • Guardianship - If you need help establishing legal guardianship for a minor child, an adult with a disability, or an elderly loved one, we can help you put the proper agreements in place that will provide both the guardian and ward with the necessary legal protections.
  • Probate and estate administration - After a loved one passes, we can help the executor of their estate file their will in probate court, and we can assist trustees with the administration of trusts. We also provide representation for different parties in probate litigation, including helping to resolve disputes related to will contests or other disputed estate planning documents, as well as representing beneficiaries who want to make sure their loved one's wishes will be followed correctly.
