How each person deals with the death of a loved one is very personal. To help your family deal with the challenges death brings during their time of grieving, it's necessary to have your own personal affairs in order ahead of time. Handling these things early is also more financially beneficial to your family than having no Estate Planning whatsoever. In cases where no Estate Planning documents exist, the State determines how your personal and real effects and affairs will be divided - without any personal knowledge of what you would want. The law firm of Lawrence Baker, Esq. can help you ensure your property goes where you want it to go, without adding unnecessary burden to your loved ones.

Drafting a Last Testament and Will is the simplest document for your future estate because you can determine how best to leave all of your property to the individuals you have chosen. However, a Living Trust, Healthcare Proxy, and Living Will are all additional important estate planning devices that can help your family when Probate is necessary, and help determine when Probate or other court proceedings are unnecessary.
