wills lawyer in west chesterAlthough many prefer to avoid the subject, we owe it to our loved ones to prepare a plan for after we’re gone. From our office in West Chester, a Wills Attorney can walk you through the process, making sure that all assets are secure and that your family is protected in the best way possible.

An important step in the estate planning process is the preparation of a will, and it often requires the assistance of an experienced attorney. Without a will, the state decides how to handle your estate. Pennsylvania laws of Intestate Succession are designed to protect a surviving spouse and children. This often means that some loved ones are left out or the estate is not distributed evenly. With a will, you can make sure that each of your loved ones receives your hard-earned assets.

Prepare a Will and Protect Your Assets

We will help you create a last will and testament, which will begin instructing others of your wishes at the exact time of death. This legal document will list the designated executor of your estate, how to distribute assets, and name a legal guardian should you have any minor children. The executor of your estate will become responsible for collecting and distributing assets, as well as paying off the estate’s debts. The experienced lawyers at LUONGO BELLWOAR LLP can privately discuss the qualities to look for in an executor to help you make the right decision for your family.

Although having a will is a vital step, it is not an estate plan. An attorney at LUONGO BELLWOAR will help to lay out your options and make sure you understand the financial results of every available option. This eliminates much of the stress in the estate planning process. In addition to drafting wills, our team can assist with

  • Setting up trusts
  • Creating living wills
  • Planning for retirement
  • Planning for relatives’ educations
  • Creating medical power of attorney
  • Creating general power of attorney
