Understanding Estate Planning

An estate plan is a set of legal documents and strategies designed to manage an individual's assets and affairs during their lifetime and distribute them after death according to their wishes. A well-crafted estate plan can provide peace of mind by ensuring that loved ones are taken care of and assets are transferred efficiently.

Components of an Estate Plan

1. Will

A will is a foundational document that outlines how your assets should be distributed upon your death. Attorney Harriman assists clients in drafting clear and legally valid wills that reflect their intentions.

Trusts are versatile estate planning tools that allow for the management and distribution of assets outside of probate. Attorney Harriman helps clients establish trusts tailored to their specific circumstances, such as revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, and special needs trusts.
