Knowledgeable Estate Planning Lawyer
Strategies to Protect Your Estate
Far too many people in California overlook the importance of estate planning. Perhaps they think it matters only for the super-wealthy but, in fact, estate planning is for everyone.
Your estate is whatever you own, and you may be surprised by how much you actually have. In addition to any bank accounts, cash or other funds you own, your estate can include your home, vehicle, motorcycle, computer equipment, electronics, jewelry, clothes, tools, furniture and more. If you have any investment properties, stocks, bonds, boats, recreational vehicles, sports equipment, antiques or heirlooms, they count as part of your estate too.
Whether you own much or little, your assets have worth. By putting matters in order with an estate planning lawyer now, you ensure that anything with financial or sentimental value will go to the people or organizations you designate, whether your family, spouse, close friend or favorite charity.
