Estate Planning

Last Will and Testament forms

Protecting a family’s assets through attentive and thorough estate planning is the best way to ensure the family’s long-term interests are well taken care of and emergencies avoided. It is a common mistake to avoid making estate plans altogether or to neglect to periodically update estate plans when a family’s needs or situations change. Without a good estate plan, assets could be lost, or avoidable court costs could erode the value of the estate. The Settle Law Firm offers a variety of estate planning documents, as well as flat fee estate packages, to meet any family’s needs.

Some of the most common documents that The Settle Law Firm provides in the area of estate planning include:

  • Wills, including pour-over wills
  • Durable and medical powers of attorney
  • Declarations of guardianship for oneself and one’s children
  • Directives to physicians (living wills)
  • Revocable and irrevocable trusts
  • Appointment for disposition of remains
  • Planning deeds, including ladybird and transfer on death deeds
