Custom Estate Plans
Some people choose a custom estate plan, for countless reasons. You might have desire to protect your assets from a state or Federal death tax. You might have assets in multiple states, with different probate laws. You might have beneficiaries you wish to protect, or who need protection from themselves. You might want more control over the disposition of your personal effects. There are countless reasons why trusts, and other legal documents, help families reduce stress and celebrate life.
Planning to Live with Dignity and Independence
Finally, most people we work with make the choice to get more control over their health and financial decisions rather than leave the decisions to a stranger (like the government). Estate planning makes a wonderful impact on our families when we reach a point when we are still alive but are incapable of making decisions for ourselves.
