Estate Planning

 The attorneys at Burke Law Group can assist you with your estate planning needs, irrespective of whther you are looking for a straightforward traditional Will, or seeking to undertake comprehensive estate preservation planning as you look towards possible healthcare issues as you enter your retirement years.  Without proper planning, most of your estate might be lost if you find yourself in need of extended home-bound care or long term care.  Without the proper estate planning documents in place, it is likely that the court system will distribute your assets, and place any minor children, according to statutes and court rules. 

Take control over the disposition of your assets and who will raise your minor children by drafting your estate planning documents ahead of time.  Do not leave these important decisions up to the courts. Our attorneys can help you create a will, living will, family or living trust, supplemental or special needs trust, minor trust, irrevocable trust, or power of attorney. 

Powers of Attorney are important documents with a proper estate plan. Generally, a power of attorney is prepared for a client as part of their estate plan, but will not be utilized until the individual becomes unable or less able to manage their affairs due to advanced age or mental or physical illness which interferes with their capacity. We advise clients who would like to give someone else power of attorney for them, as well as advising individuals who are serving as power of attorney for someone else.  Also, a special power of attorney can be prepared and used to authorize specific actions like buying or selling real estate.

An Advance Health Care Directive is another document commonly prepared as part of an estate plan. This document gives instruction to someone that you choose about your wishes regarding your end-of-life decisions. This document is generally prepared for the individual holding power of attorney for your medical decisions, to give them direction as to your wishes for life saving or ending treatment.

There are many types of trusts that can be used for estate planning purposes to preserve the value your estate, provide for persons who may have special care needs, control the use of your estate’s funds after you have passed away, and to assist you in qualifying for various assistance programs in the event of a need for extensive personal care due to physical or mental health issues that may develop later in your life.  At Burke Law Group we can utilize these estate planning tools as we develop an estate plan specifically design for your needs and desires.

At Burke Law Group we can help ensure that your final wishes are enacted. We care that the people you love and trust – your family, heirs, guardians, or attorney-in-fact – know your wishes and are given the resources to enact them.  Call today for a free no cost initial consultation.
