What Estate Planning Attorneys Do

by | Apr 8, 2013 | Elder Care Advising, Estate Planning

Sometimes there’s confusion about what we really do around here. We ARE NOT financial advisors who sell financial products or invest money.

Some of the things we do are:

  1. Use legal tools like wills, trusts, deeds and LLC’s to accomplish your goals and carry out your wishes.
  2. Coordinate your assets with your goals.
  3. Counsel and guide you in making the best decisions for your unique situation.
  4. Consult with your accountant and financial advisor to make it all fit together.
  5. Understand how financial tools such as life insurance, annuities or IRA‘s impact your legal wishes.
  6. Help maximize Medicaid or VA benefits for long-term care.
