It might be uncomfortable for many people to consider their own mortality. We need to think ahead, however, to develop a comprehensive estate plan. Our Pottstown estate planning lawyers can explain the legal ramifications of each document and answer your questions in an honest, straightforward manner.
Having an estate plan is an important part of planning for your future. Estate planning is not just for wealthy individuals, and it is never too early to start planning. At Wolf, Baldwin & Associates, P.C., our attorneys can guide you through the process of providing for your loved ones and your business. We provide peace of mind.
Offering A Full Range Of Estate Planning Services
We frequently provide estate planning advice for clients with modest estates, high net worth estates and alternative families. A comprehensive estate plan typically includes an array of documents, including:
- Powers of attorney
- Living wills and advance health care directives
- Health care powers of attorney
- Pet trusts
Individuals enjoy the thought that an estate plan gives them the opportunity to decide who gets what when. Having a will or trust in place allows a significant degree of control over your assets after death. If an individual passes away without these documents, Pennsylvania intestacy law will decide the distribution of your assets, in a way that may not coincide with your wishes. Let us help you prevent that.
Do You Need A Legal Checkup?
A concept that spans both business law and estate planning is the notion of review and re-evaluation. Even if you have worked to develop a comprehensive estate plan, it is wise to periodically review it to ensure that your plan is still effective. We will examine your estate plan and ask pertinent questions to see if modifications must be made.
- Are the agents listed on my powers of attorney still acceptable?
- Are there new heirs to be remembered in the will?
- Are there new assets that must be accounted for in your estate plan?
- Have your goals for any established trusts changed?
- Are there any current legislative trends that I should know about?
- Will recent or proposed changes in tax law dramatically change my federal or state tax liabilities?
It is important to update your estate plan on a regular basis, to ensure that it always reflects your current wishes and concerns. As a full-service law firm with attorneys practicing business law, family law, and real estate law, we have the resources to meet all of your estate planning needs: you will benefit from the knowledge and experience of all of our lawyers.
