Hurst's Trusted Estate Planning Law Firm

At Mitchell Nachtigal Law, a reputable attorney can answer all of your questions concerning any aspect of this complex area of the law. An attorney at our firm will work closely with you to create an estate plan that will give you peace of mind and accomplish your goals.

Individual estate planning entails sitting down and creating an arrangement for how you would like your assets to be distributed after you pass away. Failure to create a satisfactory plan will create a headache for your loved ones when you pass. You also risk having your property end up in the hands of someone other than who you desire.

Creating an Estate Plan Based on Your Unique Needs and Goals

Essentially, an estate plan will allow you to take advantage of financial and legal tools to address any issues that may arise in the event of incapacity, illness, or death. The estate planning process will vary from person to person. Everyone has their own unique goals, such as paying for a child’s education or donating a portion of their assets to a charity, and we want to help you achieve those.

This legal process can involve:

  • Estate tax planning

  • Life insurance planning

  • Distribution planning

  • Creating a last will and testament

  • Creating a power of attorney to give a person authority to act for you, in the event you become incapacitated

  • Creating an advanced directive for medical treatment, including a DNR and/or a living will

  • Creating trusts to protect assets

When is the Right Time to Make an Estate Plan?

  • If you do not have an estate plan, the time is now to make one. Unforseen life events can come at you at any moment. It is important that you be prepared for the worst. You owe it to yourself and your family to make sure the property that you have worked so hard to earn ends up in the person’s hands that you want. Failure to act now can leave your assets at risk of being transferred to someone else when you die.
