Estate Planning is Vital to Protecting Your Future
Safeguarding Families and Companies in NJ and PA
At Bratton Scott, we understand the importance of putting your affairs in order. Proper estate planning not only puts you in charge of your finances, it can also spare your loved ones the expense, delay and frustration associated with managing your affairs if you become incapacitated or after you’ve passed away. Our estate planning lawyers offer their superior skills and guidance to clients in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, ensuring that your wishes are carried out on your behalf. When prepared properly, estate planning documents protect the legal authority of those you have left in charge of your finances. An estate plan provides a safety net for minor children if you pass away or become incapacitated, and keeps your assets from being unnecessarily taxed. Bratton Scott handles comprehensive estate planning for individuals, families, the LBGT community and high-net worth individuals. We help prepare you for retirement and prepare documents that will allow your final wishes to be fulfilled upon your death.

Providing for Minor Children
As parents, your primary concern is for the safety and security of your children. By creating a will and/or trusts, you can protect both their financial security and their well-being by naming a guardian as well as other appropriate fiduciaries. At Bratton Scott, we understand the potential complications that could arise should you become incapacitated, or should you pass away unexpectedly. Don’t let the courts decide who will raise your children. We have a history of drafting estate plans, wills and trusts that will provide for and safeguard your children’s futures.
