Providing Education & Guidance to Help Protect Your Loved Ones
Estate Planning, Durable Powers of Attorney and Advance Medical Directives
Whether you are nearing retirement or have just started your career, and whether you’re married or single, it’s important to put an effective estate plan in place to ensure the orderly distribution of your estate and minimize the hardship on your loved ones. You don’t want to wait to put your estate plan together until an unexpected life event makes it a necessity. Also, the sooner you start, the less expensive the process will be, and the more clearly you can plan for any contingencies. Don’t fail to plan, or it’ll be like planning to fail.
In most instances, estate planning isn’t something you want to do on your own. You want experienced and knowledgeable attorneys to help you protect your rights and achieve your objectives.
At Timothy Rice Estate and Elder Law Firm in Vorhees, NJ Camden County, our team has a combined 64 years experience helping people who need guidance in estate planning. We understand how important these issues are to you, and we’ll offer sage and effective counsel to help you put your estate plan in place. We know how difficult it can be to contemplate end-of-life decisions, so we strive to always provide caring, respectful and compassionate counsel.
Our Estate Planning Practice
When you retain our firm to help you put an effective estate plan in place, we’ll start by gathering as much information as we can about your financial situation, as well as your goals. Tim Rice and his legal team will carefully explain the different strategies, including the preparation of wills or trusts, the re-titling of assets to avoid probate, and the use of lifetime gifts.
Once you have determined which approach best suits your needs, we will carefully prepare and execute all documents necessary to institute your plan, including:
- Simple or complex wills
- Any type of trust – living or testamentary, revocable or irrevocable, marital or special needs trusts, and Miller trusts for Medicaid eligibility
- Powers of attorney that give others authority to act on your behalf if you are incapacitated
- Advance Medical Directives that specify the type of medical care you want to receive if you cannot make your own decisions
