Riverside County Estate Planning Lawyer
In the world of estate planning much of my duty is not only making sure wishes are executed properly, but also providing sound advice and guidance in what can sometimes be an overwhelming sea of information, advice and expert opinion. An effective estate plan can help you transfer assets before and after death while minimizing taxes, and retain control over your health decisions if you become incapacitated. Whether you’re helping your parents or loved ones prepare a will, living trust, power of attorney or advanced health care directive (also known as a health care power of attorney or living will) or you’re in your golden years and want to make sure your estate is distributed properly we can work with you locally, or across the world to develop a plan.
RIVERSIDE COUNTY WILLS, LIVING TRUST AND ADVANCED HEALTH CARE DIRECTIVES LAWYER
At the Law Office of Robert L. Firth my goal is to turn your wishes into a comprehensive & effective estate plan. Below is a brief description of our services and link to detailed pages.
Wills & Living Trusts – A will is a legal document that outlines your wishes on how to have your property distributed after your death. It will require your heirs to go to probate court. A Trust may be used to hold money, assets or real property for a beneficiary but are primarily used to avoid probate court and minimize estate taxes.
Durable Power of Attorney – If you become incapacitated or unable to make decisions, a durable power of attorney assigns & authorizes a person to make decisions on your behalf and represent you in a broad range of areas.
Advanced Health Care Directive – An advanced health care directive is a set of written instructions outlining your preferences for medical treatment and specifies what actions should be taken regarding your health when you are unable to do so.
After we have finalized your plan, we highly recommend a regular revisit occasionally to make sure that your plan is still in line with your wishes. Please contact us today to schedule a free consultation in regards to designing an effective estate plan. As a Riverside County estate planning lawyer I can visit you where you need in any city in the Inland Empire on your schedule. If you currently have an estate plan and would like it reviewed to ascertain that it’s still in keeping with your wishes we can provide that complimentary service as well.
