Summerville Estate Planning Attorney
Estate Planning Services in Summerville, South Carolina
At Wiles Law Firm, LLC, our trust and estate lawyers routinely prepare a wide range of essential estate planning documents, including:
Last Will and Testament (will)
Durable Power of Attorney
Revocable Living Trust
While estate planning can be complicated and confusing, we will take the stress out of the process and break it down into simple steps so that you are well-equipped to reach your goals. Although no two estates are alike, a well-conceived plan should consist of a will, a power of attorney, and healthcare proxy, at a minimum.
For those with more complex estates, we often recommend taking advantage of trusts, which can help to minimize estate taxes, avoid probate, protect assets, provide for loved ones, and leave a charitable legacy. Our services are not limited to drafting estate planning documents since we know that life is a journey and your needs and goals will inevitably change as time passes. This is why we provide ongoing counsel to align your estate plan with life’s transitions, from getting married and raising a family, to acquiring wealth and meeting the challenges of aging.
Summerville Asset Protection Attorneys
For those who have closely held businesses and professional practices, we can help to protect your business and personal assets from creditors’ claims and lawsuits. Our legal team can help explore all your asset protection options, such as forming a Limited Liability Company (LLC). The main benefit of an LLC is that it protects your business assets through limited liability, while also protecting your personal assets (e.g home, savings).
In addition, we also design business succession plans as part of a comprehensive estate planning strategy. Knowing that a small business cannot endure without a leader at the helm, we can help you choose a successor and create the necessary partnership and buy/sell agreements to ensure business continuity. Above all, we will always work to protect your interests.
