We can’t tell you how often we hear some version of the above statement from people in search of estate planning legal help. If you feel similarly, our experienced Carlsbad estate planning attorneys at Griffith, Young & Lass can help. We will work with you to create a strategy that protects the wealth you’ve earned during your lifetime and carries out your wishes long after you’re gone.
Ultimately, everyone ends up with a plan for their estate. It’s up to you to determine whether your plan is one you helped create, or one the state created for you.
Why You Need an Estate Plan
An estate plan makes the administration and distribution of your assets and property far easier for your surviving family after you pass. Without a proper estate plan in place – especially a will – there is no guarantee that your estate will be handled the way you would have wanted.
By hiring an estate planning attorney in Carlsbad from Griffith, Young & Lass, you can have peace knowing that a trusted legal team is guiding you through the process, while also having confidence in the fact that you are directly involved. Rather than creating your plan for you, our team will explain everything to you so that you can make your own decisions and create an estate plan that is right for you.
Our estate planning lawyers are qualified to assist with a broad range of estate planning services, including:
- Living trusts
- Powers of attorney
- Advance health care directives
- Complex matters such as probate
We will work with you to accomplish the following:
- Protect your family’s assets by completing all paperwork with authority
- Assist your family in working together collaboratively to avoid conflict
- Achieve peace of mind that a solid plan is in place and that your family
members have a clear understanding of your desires
The best time to plan your estate is well before you reach retirement. Working with an attorney who specializes in this area of law while you’re younger and in good health means that you will have everything in place should you experience an unexpected injury or illness.
Planning your estate doesn’t have to be costly or tedious, and it shouldn’t feel impersonal. We view estate planning services as a long-term partnership. We value the relationships we build with each of our clients, and we pride ourselves on helping them establish documents to give them a place to start if they encounter a legal problem in the future.
Whether you’re planning ahead for your personal estate and you’ve found the process so complicated that you’ve felt like giving up, or your loved one’s estate, trust, will, or guardianship has become contentious, we invite you to call upon our experienced litigators for assistance.
