Estate Planning

If you have decided that you need to establish a plan for the distribution of your assets or the care of your minor children in the event of your death, you need to consult with the experienced attorneys of the Murphy Law Group. Wills and trusts cover a great many contingencies, so you need an attorney who will listen to your objectives and develop an estate plan that meets your requirements. We will gather as much information as we can about you and will then explain the different estate planning strategies and the advantages and disadvantages of each. As family dynamics change over the years, particularly with more and more blended families, there are often many difficult questions about how to handle estate planning. Through personalized and customized planning, the attorney at the Murphy Law Group will listen to your wishes and goals, then work with you to create a plan that is in your best interests.

Some of the estate planning documents that we can assist in creating are:

 

  • Last Will and Testament: Make sure that your family has a clear directive about your property should be divided. Your last will and testament should make your intentions clear to everyone concerned.
  • Durable Power of Attorney: What if a time comes that you are unable to make financial or medical decisions for yourself? A durable power of attorney can establish responsibility and guidelines so that trusted individuals can step in to make decisions when you can’t.
  • Trusts: The estate planning lawyers at the Murphy Law Group can help you decide if a trust is in your best interest. There are different types of trusts: a living trust (revocable); an irrevocable trust; a support trust for children; a charitable trust; an insurance trust; or another type of trust, like one to care for your beloved pets. Our attorneys can provide the specialized advice that you need to decide what type of trust you need and will prepare the documents that are right to protect what matters most to you.
