At Greer Law, we believe estate planning is essential for everyone. Since none of us can predict when we will die or become ill, an estate plan helps prepare your family for challenging situations and decisions. We address your most significant concerns and help you put a plan in place for healthcare and financial decisions if you can no longer make them for yourself. We also protect your assets and help you determine what happens to them when you’re gone. If you don’t have an estate plan, then state laws and courts will decide who gets your assets when you pass and who can make healthcare or financial decisions for you while you’re alive. The result rarely aligns with your wishes.
Planning is essential to our life, especially in our later years. Having a proper estate plan ensures your wishes are carried out, provides potential tax savings, and makes things easier for your family during difficult times. It also ensures you have control over your quality of life, your home and valuables, and your privacy, so your family has some peace of mind when you have passed.
