Benefits of Estate Planning

Estate planning can bring you peace of mind on key issues such as protecting your children’s welfare, your assets and privacy. A properly executed estate plan can also help you save on taxes and avoid probate. A key advantage of estate planning is minimizing any impact to your loved ones by having your wishes legally documented before your death or incapacity. The most common estate planning mistake is not putting a will or trust in place. Remember: without an estate plan, the courts may designate an individual to make decisions about your assets that do not reflect your wishes. We’ll help you prepare for the expected and the unexpected through our comprehensive checklist of estate and financial planning.

When you work with Wiles, you will have comfort knowing that your legacy will be preserved and your loved ones will be protected. Additionally, planning for incapacity through the use of powers of attorney and advance medical directives will relieve your loved ones of the burden of asking the court for the authority to assume these responsibilities. Moreover, if you wish to avoid probate and minimize estate taxes, we can help you establish a variety of trusts. We also routinely design business succession plans for individuals and families with closely held businesses and professional practices.
