Mercer County NJ Estate Planning Attorneys
No matter what your age, your financial situation, or your state of health, it is important for you to have an estate plan. Though some may shrug off the idea, believing that it is only for the wealthy or those who are elderly, the truth is that life can throw unexpected events into your path at any time, and if you don’t have carefully crafted legal documentation that expresses your wishes, then if something happens to you your will leave your loved ones without direction and open to unnecessary taxation, stress and expense.

Estate planning is about far more than writing a will and making sure that beneficiary assignments are kept up-to-date. Having a well crafted, well thought-out estate plan will provide you with the certainty that the person who you trust the most will be responsible for managing your property and making health care decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. Estate planning includes tax minimization strategies that protect your beneficiaries through the use of trusts and addresses the complex needs of those who own their own business, have minor children or grandchildren for whom they would like to provide, those who require special LGBT planning, or those who simply want to determine whether they are preparing appropriately for retirement.
