Estate Planning Attorneys in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania
Wills, Trusts, and Other Powerful Legal Tools
Many ordinary people do not think of themselves as having “estates.” In fact, however, the sum total of a person’s possessions is often significant: real estate, vehicles, bank accounts, retirement assets, and household property. An estate plan that takes all into account can make a great difference for family members or other beneficiaries.
Failing to put sensible tools in place for transferring property to intended beneficiaries means those people will incur unnecessary expenses. They will very likely experience delays and troubles that could have been avoided with basic planning.
Remember: estate planning is not only for the wealthy. It is an ethical duty and responsibility for any adult with assets and/or dependents.
