Common Sense Advice For Your Estate Planning Needs

When it comes to considering what will happen to your possessions, assets and wishes when you die, proper planning makes all the difference.

When done thoughtfully and carefully, estate planning can ensure that your estate is managed efficiently when the time comes. With proper planning, you can designate who will receive your belongings after you die as well as plan for the unexpected should you become ill or incapacitated. At Hurley Gunsher, Ltd., our experienced attorneys can offer seasoned guidance throughout the process of protecting and preserving your estate.

Preparing For The Unexpected

Our attorneys have a long history of working together with individuals, families and businesses across Ohio on estate planning matters. While estate planning is most often associated with death, it also includes preparing for the possibility of a debilitating illness, injury or disability that could prevent you from making important health care or financial decisions on your own. We can assist with a range of estate planning considerations, including:

  • Wills
  • Living wills or health care directives
  • Powers of attorney
  • Irrevocable and revocable trusts

Estate plans are completely dependent on your goals, as well as on the complexity of your estate. While a will is often the foundation of an estate plan, it may be in your best interests to incorporate other planning tools and documents. We understand that an estate plan has more purposes than simply transferring your property to the next generation. You may want to consider the tax implications that your estate could have, how to preserve your legacy, the possibility of your estate going through probate court and more. Whatever your goals may be, we can assist in achieving them.

Sensitive Issues Can Become Contentious Issues

We recognize the sensitive nature of estate planning. Because it concerns everything you care deeply about, we work hard to ensure that when the time comes, our planning ahead will pay off. With such sensitive issues, however, disputes surrounding wills and trusts are unfortunately not uncommon. Should a dispute arise, our experience in probate litigation can be advantageous in swiftly resolving disputes and ensuring that your wishes are executed as desired.
