Contrary to what some people think, estate planning is not just for the wealthy! Although few individuals want state laws to determine who receives their assets when they pass away, that is precisely what could happen if you do not have a will. If you own anything of value or have dependents, you should have a will, health care directive, and durable powers of attorney as the basic documents in your estate plan. If you own significant assets, are in a blended family, own a business, or want to have greater control over how your assets are managed in the event of your incapacity or at your death, a trust may be part of your estate plan.
Attorney Jill Rynkowski Doyle believes that estate planning can help clients achieve many goals, including protecting loved ones, preserving and efficiently transferring wealth, and mitigating often burdensome tax liabilities. Her approach to estate planning is a collaborative one that begins with discussing all of your objectives in detail. She addresses all your concerns and creates a customized plan, and then ensures that you understand how your plan will be executed.
