BestEstatePlanningTrusts.com delivers core information regarding the fundamentals of Wills, trusts, and asset protection.

"Our team of legal professionals has helped people from all walks of life put together comprehensive estate planning portfolios to protect assets from all types of potential scenarios," states Switzer. "We focus on our clients personal situations and develop plans to address their concerns."
A great misconception about estate planning is that it's only required if people own property. The reality is preparing a Will is necessary for many reasons. Along with reducing time needed to reconcile probated estates, Wills are used to establish legal guardianship for minor children and pass along assets to heirs.
Probate is a legal requirement in every state. When a person dies without executing a will and testament their estate is settled in accordance with state probate law and assets are divided amongst rightful heirs.
Executing a last will is one part of estate planning. Another essential step is arranging a revocable living trust that includes a healthcare proxy and durable power of attorney. These legal documents authorize a personal agent to take care of financial, business, and medical matters in the event of emergency.
"Putting together a complete estate planning portfolio provides peace of mind knowing that everything is covered if things go wrong," states Switzer. "Our goal is to help clients acquire the facts so they can make informed decisions."
The estate planning law firm of Craton and Switzer has more than 45 years combined legal experience in estate planning and asset protection. They offer expertise and guidance in creating life plans and represent clients in probate disputes, estate settlement, and trust accounting matters.
