Our Estate Planning Process
A good estate plan will provide a smooth transition
in the event of incapacity and reduce conflict
within the family both before and after your death.
A well-planned estate is your final gift to your loved ones. It is part of your legacy.
The attorneys at Hastings, Laun & Houser LLLC will work with you to ensure that your property is transferred according to your wishes, that you are able to provide financial security for your spouse, and that your estate pays the least amount of estate taxes possible.
A well-designed estate plan also includes documents such as powers of attorney that avoid a court-administered conservatorship in the event of your incapacity. We also often utilize sophisticated techniques to transfer wealth from generation to generation.
Our firm will guide you through each step of the estate planning process. This means that we will assist you in evaluating your needs, suggest alternative distribution plans, draft your documents, and provide you with the formalities necessary for their effective execution.
