Estate Planning is a important investment in your family’s future. Estate planning is important, no matter what size your estate or location. We proudly serve Seattle, as well as the surrounding areas of King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Without an estate plan, your wealth will most likely fall under probate law, and will go before a probate court in a drawn-out, expensive and very public procedure, with a judge may make the ultimate decisions about where your wealth goes. With no estate plan, any family disputes will be played out publicly, possibly damaging family harmony for generations.
When you have an estate plan, you can rest assured that your hard-earned wealth will go to your family or chosen heirs. The government won’t be able to take what you’ve spent a lifetime building. During your life, estate planning can also help you protect your assets against your possible future mental or physical incapacity and the catastrophic costs of long-term medical and nursing care. Finally, estate planning can protect you from financial fraud and abuse, should you lose your ability to make your own decisions.
