Estate Planning Is A Highly Personal, Individualized Matter
Berner Law Group, PLLC, assists clients with estate planning matters, encompassing everything from planning your retirement to planning for after death. Proper planning with a good lawyer will allow you and your family to receive the full benefit of everything you have worked so hard to acquire. Unless you plan, your estate may be unnecessarily diminished if you become incapacitated during your lifetime. Without proper estate planning, the Washington state statutes will determine who receives your assets and administers your estate at your death.
Many issues determine which estate planning decisions are best for you and your family. Who will manage assets for your minor children if you die prematurely? Who will handle your assets and make decisions about your medical care if you become disabled? How can you protect your family financially if you have to go into a nursing home? How can you protect your spouse and your children if you have a “blended” family? Your estate plan should reflect your personal value system and unique circumstances. We are trained and experienced in all areas of estate planning, including, but not limited to:
- Last will and testament (wills)
- Powers of attorney (POAs)
- Advance medical care directives (living will)
