Don’t Put Off Planning For Your Future

Drafting Documents That Reflect Your Wishes
When you begin creating an estate plan, there are myriad documents and tools you can use to protect your family and your future. With more than 20 years of experience in the financial sector, founding attorney Paul Leone understands that properly prepared documents make life easier for all of the parties involved.
As your legal guide through the estate planning process, the Leone Law Office P.C. can help you select, draft and revise an array of legal tools, including:
- Wills: One of the most common planning documents, a will explains how your property should be distributed. Wills often appoint a personal representative, or executor, that oversees the process and ensures all your assets are divided up according to your wishes. A will can also designate a guardian for your minor children or adults with special needs who were in your care.
- Trusts: Transferring your property to a trust helps your beneficiaries receive assets without undergoing the lengthy and expensive probate process. In a trust, your assets are legally held by a trustee, who manages the distribution of that property. A trustee can be a family member, an attorney or an organization. Trusts can be used in place of a will or as a supplement to the will.
- Advance medical directives: As you get older, you may have opinions about how your medical care should be carried out. By creating an advance medical directive, you give your family members a roadmap for your care in the event that you can no longer make those decisions on your own.
- Powers of attorney: A power of attorney designates an individual or individuals that you trust to make decisions on your behalf. In many cases, a power of attorney gives the designee the ability to manage your finances when you become incapacitated.
Your estate is as unique as you are, and your estate plan should reflect that. With our help, you can create a plan that meets your needs and communicates your final wishes in clear, legally enforceable terms.
