Scotch Plains lawyer protects the legacies of individuals and families    

While most people recognize how important it is to plan for the future — their own and that of their loved ones — it can be very difficult to sit down and create an estate plan. It's easy to procrastinate and put this task off for another time. However, we never know what the future holds, so taking some time right now to put a solid estate plan in place is essential. At Patricia A. Mack Attorney at Law in Scotch Plains, I am here to help you understand all of your estate planning options so that you can feel confident in the protections you are creating for yourself and your loved ones. Whether your goals are relatively simple or highly complex, I am dedicated to working closely with you to understand your specific needs and to develop an estate plan that affords you all the protections you need.

Elements of a comprehensive estate plan

Many people hear the term “estate plan” and they automatically assume this means a will. While a will is certainly an important aspect of estate planning, there are several other components that offer further protections to you and your family members. When I meet with you, I’ll learn about your specific concerns and goals. From there, I can walk you through a variety of estate planning options that might be useful as a supplement to your last will and testament. Depending on your objectives, you might choose to draft an advance directive for health care, establish a living trust to hold your assets or name a durable power of attorney to handle financial matters in the event you are incapacitated. When we discuss your overall estate plan, you can decide what is most important to you.
