Estate Planning Lawyer Bloomington IL
Drafting Estate Plans for Decades
A basic estate plan typically consists of a last will and testament, a power of attorney, and a living will. These three documents form the basic building blocks of a proper estate plan. They facilitate the proper administration of a person’s estate while they are living but unable to make decisions for themselves. They also provide for the basic disposition of a person’s assets after their death. For many people this is the extent of their estate planning needs.
Some people require a more complex estate plan including the use of trusts. We can help you determine what the correct plan is for you to make sure that your wishes are carried out.
