We Offer Extensive Estate Planning Services
Estate planning is no walk in the park. It involves complex legal issues, and many times people have very specific concerns they would like to address in their plans. Fortunately, the team at Maggs McDermott & DiCicco has the experience necessary to provide you with a wide range of services. Our estate planning lawyers are knowledgeable in this field and can help with all of the following:
- Wills and Trust Preparation: If you’ve never created a will before, the process can be daunting. Our team will help you better understand what to include in a will or trust.
- Living Wills: A living will allows you to communicate your wishes to physicians and medical professionals regarding end-of-life care. We’ll make sure you clearly state your wishes, so your family doesn’t have to worry about making such decisions.
- Powers of Attorney: A power of attorney gives a selected person the authority to make medical and financial decisions for you, should you no longer be able to decide for yourself. Our estate planning and trust attorneys will explain the ins-and-outs of getting a power of attorney.
- Guardianships: While it can be scary to think about what happens to your children upon your passing, it’s crucial to consider guardianship. We’ll help you create a plan that states who gets guardianship of your dependents should you no longer be able to care for them.
- Generation-Skipping Planning: If you’d like to skip a generation and name a grandchild as your beneficiary, we can walk you through the legal details of this decision.
- Special Needs Planning: Many families include people with special needs. If you’d like to plan for future care for a loved one with special needs, our attorneys can ensure you have adequate provisions in your estate planning documents.
- Probate Administration and Will Contests: Are you having a hard time navigating probate administration or a will contest. Maggs McDermott & DiCicco can help you take on these complicated processes.
- Charitable Giving: Some people want to leave a legacy beyond their family and heirs. We work with clients who wish to include charitable giving in their estate plans.
- Private Foundations: Those who are especially interested in charitable giving may choose to set up a private foundation to ensure their assets go to good use. We can clearly explain this process and help you set up a foundation.
