Estate Planning Services From My Family To Yours
Many people try to put off creating an estate plan for as long as possible. The process can seem intimidating, tedious and overwhelming. But the sooner you have legally sound documents in place, the better you will feel knowing that you have planned for your and your loved ones’ futures.
At Radford & Wandrei, P.C., I provide a comprehensive estate planning practice. My name is Steven Wandrei, and I represent people at all stages of life with many different estate planning goals. As the attorney of a family-run law firm, I know the importance of family. I offer estate planning services that are designed to protect your family, provide peace of mind, maximize wealth transfer and help you adjust to many of life’s changes.
What To Expect From An Estate Planning Lawyer
In our first meeting, I will talk to you about your goals. I will ask questions such as:
- What are you trying to accomplish?
- What are your concerns?
- Are there any special circumstances in your family? For example, do you have a special needs child? Is your spouse incapacitated? In the event of your death will your children need a guardian?
- Have there been any recent changes to your family structure? This includes the death of your spouse, a new child, serious illness, marriage or divorce.
Your customized plan can include a:
- Living will
- Health care directive
- Power of attorney
After I gain an understanding of your goals and your specific situation, we can talk about the estate planning documents that fit you and how you can use them to avoid probate. I will also answer any questions you have.
Shielding Your Hard-Earned Assets From Taxes
I have knowledge about the various tax consequences of certain estate planning directives. I remain current on the ever-changing federal tax laws and strive to mitigate my clients’ tax consequences.
Skillfully Handling Estate Administration, Probate And Litigation
In addition to creating estate planning documents, I help executors and administrators understand their duties when it comes to administration and probate. If you need to challenge some aspect of the will or face a lawsuit related to the estate, I am a strong litigator with extensive experience. Although these issues can be sensitive, I know how to balance compassion with the assertive representation necessary to uphold your best interests.
