Estate Planning Attorney & Probate Law

Estate planning and asset protection are not services just for wealthy people or the elderly. Estate planning is for families! Its for anyone looking to properly defend the future of their wealth and ensure that all assets are disseminated according to your will in the event of your passing. Together, we can create a plan that is built for you – and one that keeps the government from deciding what happens to you, your family and your belongings.

Your Wills & Trust Attorney

When it comes to protecting your assets, having the right documentation can go a long way and prevent a lot of headaches. Drafting a will allows you to legally determine who receives what after your passing. Collins Law will work directly with you to establish a will that can save your family from needless probate and litigation over your estate.

Administering a trust is an integral part of drafting a secure estate plan. Here are just some of the questions that we help answer for you throughout the process:

  • What is the best way to distribute all necessary assets and inheritances?
  • What is the difference between a trust asset and a personal asset?
  • What are the estate taxes that I should be aware of?
  • How will my debts and income be handled?
  • How will we administer my trust expenses?
  • How do we avoid any conflicts of interests among the beneficiaries involved?

Other Estate Planning Serves We Offer

  • Probate Administration: Appointing your executor to probate your will, officially catalog your assets, file your final tax returns, prepare your estate tax return, pay off any creditor claims and allocate assets according to the established will.
  • Power of Attorney: Establishing an official Power of Attorney that is legally authorized to manage all of your assets, sign legal documents, defend you in court, file income taxes, apply for government benefits and make general financial decisions on your behalf in the event that you are mentally or physically unable.
  • Guardianships: Determining the legal guardian(s) of minors and/or elderly adults or individuals with special needs that may be under your care. These guardians will be given varying degrees of written responsibility – from minor life decisions, to large scale financial and medical choices.
