Set Your Family Up For A Steady Future
Wills and trusts are excellent tools to use in your estate plan so you can protect your family. By strategically leaving assets in a trust, you can minimize the impact of taxes on your estate. By having a clear document that names your beneficiaries and identifies the assets they should receive, you can make the process after your death much easier for your loved ones.
I can help you use both these tools to your advantage. My name is Maria K. Boyles. I founded Solid Rock Law Firm, PLLC, so I could provide the people of Virginia with solid legal representation in estate planning and real estate law. I will guide you through the steps of creating custom wills and trusts so you can set your family up for a positive future.
Do I Really Need An Attorney To Make A Will?
The internet offers plenty of do-it-yourself options to create a will or other estate planning documents. However, courts often do not uphold these documents. To have a legally sound will that a judge will honor, you need a lawyer like me to assist you in drafting it.
Is A Trust Right For Me?
A common misconception about trusts is that they are only for exceptionally wealthy people. People of all incomes can benefit from trusts. Some of their advantages include:
- Bypassing probate
- Avoiding taxes
- Providing for a loved one who has special needs
- Providing a long-term income for the beneficiary
- Preventing someone from squandering assets
Anyone can set up a trust, but you should have the counsel of an attorney who can make sure you set it up properly and who can help you explore every advantage available.
