Estate Planning enables a person to control what happens to his or her assets at the end of his or her life.

A will is the most basic estate planning tool and is used to direct the distribution of the decedent’s estate. Other tools, such as trusts, may be useful, depending on the size of the person's estate and whether there are dependent or disabled loved ones in the picture. The various Power of Attorneys appoint agents to carry out your affairs after your passing. Depending on your goals, your estate plan may allow your estate to avoid probate entirely.

Do not leave these important issues to chance by allowing the State to decide what happens. Proper estate planning gives one peace of mind knowing that loved ones will be taken care of in the manner you desire. Let Landon help you understand the many documents available for estate planning and pick the ones needed for your circumstances.
