Estate Planning

Estate Plans for Peace of Mind

Estate Planning is more than a form. It is a relationship with your attorney who creates peace of mind about your legacy.  You worked hard during your life to create a legacy. Your plan is about your wishes on how to leave your legacy. You deserve a living plan that fits your life events, one that is tailored for you and your family. 

Sheri Tucker is an attorney dedicated to help you and your family create your Peace-of-Mind estate plan that fits your needs. Read on for estate plan information. 

Wills: A Last Will and Testament outlines how assets should be distributed after your death.  Wills are filed in Probate Court.  For parents, a will is the only way to name a guardian for your minor children.

Trusts: This estate planning option allows you to transfer ownership of your assets to a trust and keep your affairs private. 

Planning for Children: Families with minor children have unique needs. As part of your estate plan, you need to name a guardian to provide for your children’s care. You can also set up a minor’s trust, or you may need a special needs trust.

Non-Traditional Families: Address the needs of your non-traditional family.  The firm assists all types of families, including grandparents raising their grandchildren, people on a second or subsequent marriage, and those in a same-sex marriage or civil union.

Advanced Estate Planning: You can use a range of advanced estate planning solutions for asset protection to accommodate your family’s specific needs, provide for future generations, and protect assets from seizure by creditors.

Digital Asset Trusts: Set up a digital asset trust to protect your non-tangible assets, including online accounts, cryptocurrency, and gaming accounts.

Gun Trusts: Establish a NFA  “gun trust,” which holds your firearm collection. Visit Trust Your Gun for more information.
