Estate Planning with Lakewood Will and Trust Attorneys

Signing Last Will and TestamentEstate planning involves a lot more than just writing a will, although drafting a will may be part of the process. If you take advantage of other estate planning tools, you may not need a will. At Erickson Webb Scolton & Hajdu, we have more than 70 years of combined experience in estate planning and putting together the numerous documents that may be involved.

With our state-of-the-art technology along with the latest case management software, our ability to plan for your future is as efficient as possible. Some of the estate planning tools we use include, but are not limited to:

  • Wills: Provide for how you want your personal and real property to be transferred at the time of your death.
  • Trusts: There are different types that can be established so that probate is not required and your assets can pass to your heirs without taxation.
  • Living wills: These give someone you trust the power and authority to make health care decisions on your behalf when you are unable to make them for yourself.
  • Power of attorney: Gives a trusted person the authority to make business or any other personal decisions on your behalf when you are unable to make them for yourself.

We have experience in litigation on any of these provisions when necessary. We also assist with elder law issues which concern planning for asset protection, Medicaid planning and other issues relevant to making sure you get the care you need when you need it without depleting your assets.
