Planning your final estate is an important step that every person needs to take.

We work to explain our clients’ options and help them make decisions that allow them to effectively plan for the future. Below are some of the types of estate planning matters that we handle. Contact our firm to schedule an initial consultation.

Wills

A will is a set of instructions for the distribution of your assets upon your death. The only way to ensure that your money assets, real estate, and family heirlooms are distributed according to your wishes is to have a will. Our firm can help you understand what you need to include in a will and how it can ensure your wishes are carried out.

Trusts

There are many different types of trusts that are intended to achieve different goals. By discussing your situation and examining your assets that will fund the trust, we can effectively determine the most appropriate type of trust. Our firm handles the creation of a variety of trusts, including a revocable trust, irrevocable trust or living trust.

Other Types of Estate Planning Instruments and Services

Those who do not create an estate plan, with a will or trust, shall find that state law dictates how their property will be distributed after their death. This may not be in line with their hopes, desires, and the best interests of their family members. Creating an estate plan with a will or trust ensures your heirs know how you wanted your estate settled and may reduce family stress during a difficult time for your loved ones.

For more information or to further discuss your specific estate planning needs, contact the New Jersey and Pennsylvania law offices of McDowell Posternock Apell & Detrick, PC. We can provide the experienced and compassionate legal representation that your case requires.
