At Toussaint law firm we believe everyone should talk to an attorney about their estate plan. Many think estate planning is only for the wealthy. But trust us, this is not the case. We all have loved ones we want to care for during our life and after we pass. We can help with both.
Estate planning helps you plan for the expected, unexpected and everything in between. We can help you distribute your assets using wills, trusts, and other estate planning tools and put the framework in place for distributing your assets. Finally, we talk to families about how they can pass personal property onto relatives and we can show you how to protect families with small children or children in blended families. We can also help you understand how your life insurance ties into your estate plan.
We also help you plan for the possibility of your incapacity. A power of attorney can be useful if you become disabled or incompetent and allow someone else to take care of your needs.
We can help you pre-plan end of life issues to insure that your wishes regarding the end of your life are known and to protect your family from having to make these difficult decisions. Without putting these in writing and signing them there is no way to enforce them. We want to make sure your wishes are known.
