Estate Planning

Kershner Sledziewski Law can help you and your family with various legal services and issues that will help preserve your assets for the people that matter most to you. We can assist in developing a comprehensive estate plan that includes one or more of the following: 

Wills

  • A will is a legal document that specifies how your assets should be distributed upon your death.

  • It allows you to name an executor who will carry out your wishes and guardians for minor children if applicable.

  • You can also use a will to express funeral and burial preferences. 

Trusts

  • A living trust is a legal entity that holds and manages your assets during your lifetime and allows for the smooth transfer of those assets upon death.

  • The person who creates the trust (grantor) can also be the trustee and maintain control over the assets.

  • Assets placed in a living trust avoid probate, providing a more private and efficient transfer of assets.

Durable Power of Attorney

  • This document appoints an individual (agent or attorney-in-fact) to make financial and legal decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated.

  • "Durable" means the power of attorney remains in effect even if you become mentally incompetent.

Healthcare Power of Attorney (Healthcare Proxy)

  • Similar to a durable power of attorney but specifically for healthcare decisions.

  • This document designates someone to make medical decisions on your behalf if you are unable to communicate or make decisions.

Living Will (Advance Directive)

  • A living will outlines your preferences regarding medical treatment in case of a terminal illness or irreversible coma.

  • It specifies whether you want life-sustaining measures, such as artificial nutrition or resuscitation.

Transfer on Death Instrument 

A Transfer on Death (TOD) instrument, also known as a Transfer on Death Deed or Beneficiary Deed, is a legal document that allows an individual to designate beneficiaries who will automatically receive ownership of a specific asset upon the individual's death, without the need for probate. This instrument is often used for real estate, but it can also be applicable to other assets.

Kershner Sledziewski Law is devoted to effectively developing a plan for you and your estate, ensuring that you and your loved ones receive the utmost protection on your assets. 

We can help you with the services you know you need today, and anticipate your family's needs for the future. For more inofrmation and inquiries, call Kershner Sledziewski Law.
