A Firm Providing Peace Of Mind With Estate Planning And Probate Services
Thomas-McDonald Law Firm, P.A. offers knowledgeable and experienced guidance in estate planning, probate and estate administration. Whether you are planning your own estate, updating your plan or need help settling the affairs of a recently deceased loved one, attorney Aislynn Thomas-McDonald and her team will be there to offer personalized service and sound advice every step of the way.
Creating A Customized Estate Plan Is Easy With The Help Of An Attorney
No one knows what tomorrow will bring, which is why you shouldn’t put off planning your estate. Instead of relying on templated forms found online, however, it is wise to seek help from a skilled estate planning attorney. Your estate plan needs to be clearly written, thorough and legally sound. These are outcomes you just can’t expect when taking the do-it-yourself approach.
The attorneys at Thomas-McDonald Law can help you create a thorough estate plan that clearly expresses your wishes, meets your goals and protects those you love. Many plans will include some or all of the following:
- A last will and testament along with a designated personal representative
- One or more trusts
- A living will (also called an advance directive)
- Designated power of attorney in case you become incapacitated
- Designation of a pre-need guardian
The firm offers competitive rates for estate planning services, including some flat-fee options, which can be discussed during your initial consultation.
Comprehensive Representation In Probate Matters
Even under ideal circumstances, probate is not a quick or easy process (unless it can be avoided altogether, which is somewhat rare). When someone dies without a will and without designated beneficiaries, the estate must go through a process called probate administration, which can be even more difficult.
If you’ve been named as the personal representative of a loved one’s estate or have otherwise been tasked with their final affairs, you’ll need the help of an attorney. The reassuring news is that if you hire the right attorney, like those at Thomas-McDonald Law Firm, P.A., they can handle most of the work for you, ensuring that no detail is overlooked and no deadline is missed. Peace of mind like this is priceless when trying to grieve a loved one.
Depending on the estate planning documents and other details about the estate, you may have numerous options for how to proceed with probate. You can discuss these with your attorney at the first meeting.
