Why Estate Planning Matters

Estate planning is the process of preparing for the transfer of your assets after your death. This includes not only your physical property, but also your financial accounts, investments, and personal possessions. By creating an estate plan, you can ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes, and that your loved ones are taken care of after you're gone.

At Hess Law Firm, LLC, we believe that estate planning is a critical part of financial planning. Without a proper estate plan in place, your assets may be subject to probate, which can be time-consuming, expensive, and stressful for your loved ones. With a comprehensive estate plan, you can minimize the burden on your loved ones and ensure that your wishes are carried out effectively.

Our Estate Planning Services

At Hess Law Firm, LLC, we provide a wide range of estate planning services to help you achieve your goals. Our services include:

  • Wills: A will is a legal document that outlines your wishes for the distribution of your assets after your death. We can help you create a customized will that reflects your unique circumstances and objectives.
  • Trusts: A trust is like a legal entity that holds assets for the benefit of one or more beneficiaries. Trusts can provide a variety of benefits, such as asset protection, tax savings, and flexibility in asset distribution.
  • Powers of Attorney: A power of attorney is a legal document that designates someone to act on your behalf in the event that you become incapacitated. We can help you create powers of attorney that ensures your affairs are handled according to your wishes.
  • Probate and Estate Administration: We can assist with the administration of an estate after a loved one has passed away. We can guide you through the probate process and help ensure that your loved one's assets are distributed according to their wishes.
