We know that planning for your future isn’t easy. Many people believe that only wealthy individuals need estate planning assistance or a will. While complicated estate plans may be needed in some cases, most people are simply concerned that their family will be cared for properly and protected when they are gone.
Whether you think you have substantial assets or not, if you have loved ones, you should have a will and other basic components of an estate plan. With our experience in simple estate planning, we can help you draft a will, advanced directive, living will, or power of attorney. Please call (410) 760-9433 or use our form below to schedule a no-obligation consultation.
When Aretha Franklin died —without a legal will—in 2018, she joined a surprisingly long list of famous people, including Prince, who also did the same. By not preparing an estate plan, she made the task of settling her affairs more complicated for her survivors. While your estate may not be as large or complex as a famous singer's, it's still important to have a plan in place in the event of your death.
Thorough planning means accounting for all of your assets and ensuring they transfer as smoothly as possible to the people or entities you wish to receive them. Along with implementing your plan, you must make sure others know about it and understand your wishes. Not sure how to get started?
