Here at White & Associates, we all have the hearts of teachers. We want to educate our clients on what their options are for moving forward and what each option involves. What’s more, we want to ensure we have all the resources you require at our finger tips. To that end, we have built a strong network of professionals to help you make the right plans.
A proper estate plan involves a variety of legal documents, including wills, power of attorney forms, and healthcare directives. What’s more, a proper plan accurately protects the people you love and the assets you have worked so hard for.
At White & Associates, we have nearly 20 years of experience representing clients in Elk River and throughout the region. Let us put our experience to work for you by drafting estate planning documents that accurately represent your wishes.
With a will, you secure your family’s future and lay out your legacy. You identify who will take care of your children in the event that you are not here to care for them. You determine which charities receive your support and which family members receive an inheritance.
Without a will, Minnesota laws will kick in and automatically determine how to divvy up your estate. If you have not sheltered your estate with creative estate planning, this also leaves your estate open to potentially expensive taxes, leaving even less of a legacy to pass on to your loved ones.
There are several DIY legal websites out there, ready to sell you a basic template for a will. On some levels, this may seem like the best use of your potentially limited resources. The problem with these services, however, is that they do not tailor the documents to your specific personal situation. What’s more, these documents do not give you the legal guidance you need to put your will, power of attorney and healthcare directive into action. It is the difference between estate “drafting” with no legal guidance and estate “planning” with legal guidance.
So if you created a will using a DIY legal documents website, bring it to us for review. Let us ensure that your will accurately represents your intentions. And then let us help you figure out what you need to do to fill in any gaps in your death or disability planning.
We have been serving the Elk River area for nearly 20 years. Throughout the years, we have earned a reputation for being strong advocates for our clients. Let us put this advocacy to work for you.
