Attorneys Assisting With Wills, Trusts, and Powers of Attorney in Brunswick and Wooster

No matter your age, it is important to plan for what should happen in the event of your death. You want the assets you have acquired throughout your lifetime to be passed to your heirs as quickly and simply as possible, and taking steps to set down your wishes in an estate plan will ensure that legal issues are addressed and that your wishes can be carried out correctly. Estate planning can also help address issues related to taxes, charitable giving, and end-of-life care. The attorneys at The Law Office of Whitney K.S. Miller, LLC have more than 21 years of combined experience, and we provide comprehensive estate planning services that will ensure your family's needs are met.

Estate Planning Tools

Creating an estate plan is an important step that everyone should take, regardless of your age, marital status, or financial circumstances. Depending on your situation, you may wish to utilize one or more of the following in your estate plan:

  • Wills- Your last will and testament sets down the wishes that should be carried out after your death. These wishes may include how your property should be distributed to your heirs or who will become the legal guardian of your minor children.
  • Trusts - A trust allows you to set aside assets that will be held and administered by a trustee and distributed to beneficiaries according to your instructions. Trusts offer a great deal of flexibility and privacy, and they can be used to provide for loved ones with special needs or distribute funds to a charitable organization.
  • Powers of Attorney - Before your death, you can name a person who is authorized to make decisions for you. A power of attorney can be created for your financial affairs or your health care, and it can go into effect if you become incapacitated or are unable to make decisions for yourself.

Our attorneys also provide representation during the probate process, which takes place after a person dies. During this process, a court supervises the distribution of assets according to the deceased person's will. If the will is contested, probate litigation may be necessary to settle any disputes regarding the validity of the will or the actions taken by the will's executor.
