Estate planning is something that many people put off until it is too late. In the event that you should pass away without having taken provisions such as drafting a will or establishing a trust, your estate will be divided up among your heirs according to the arbitrary dictates of California state law. Consequently, your loved ones may end up receiving significantly less from your estate than they should have, given that the claims of creditors and court costs can drain the value of the estate.
Furthermore, beneficiaries may be forced to wait far longer than necessary before they can receive their share of the estate and move on with their lives. Even worse, they may become embroiled in disputes or litigation over the disposition of the estate. Don't let this happen to your family.
Take the time now to work with a Roseville estate planning lawyer who can help you implement strategies to provide for your loved ones and protect your legacy in the time after your passing. At Herrig & Vogt, LLP, our legal team has the dedication and insight you deserve to have on your side. We encourage you to discover what your legal options are today.
When you choose Herrig & Vogt, LLP for your estate planning needs, you will be working with a team of lawyers who have over 20 years of experience in this particular field of law. We have assisted countless clients throughout Placer, El Dorado and Sacramento Counties with various aspects of estate planning, and we know the statutes of the California Probate Code inside and out.
Depending on the size and complexity of your estate, we may advise that you draft a will or recommend that you create a trust for the disposition of your assets. Trusts have several advantages over wills, including the fact that they make it possible to avoid probate and protect the estate from the inheritance tax. In addition to estate planning documents for the distribution of assets to your heirs, we can also help you implement strategies to ensure that you can make your wishes known in the event that you are incapacitated by an injury or illness.
In addition to helping clients create and implement estate planning tools, we also represent clients in matters of probate, execution of wills, will contests, and administration of trusts.
If you have been appointed as an estate administrator or as the trustee of an estate, we can advise you throughout the process to help you complete your duties as well as defend you against allegations of any breach of duty. With decades of experience in the field of estate planning, you can have confidence in our ability to get results. Contact Herrig & Vogt, LLP today!
