If You Have Loved Ones, You Should Have An Estate Plan

Too many people misunderstand the importance of having a comprehensive estate plan in place. Many of those who have not created an estate plan mistakenly believe it is for people who have extensive and complex assets or that it is something that can be addressed later in life.

The simple truth is, if you have assets and you have loved ones in your life, you need, at minimum, a last will and testament and powers of attorney. At Mehalko and Moghul PLLC, in McLean, Virginia, we help individuals develop estate plans that protect their loved ones and provide peace of mind.

Estate Plans Help Avoid Headaches

Creating a comprehensive estate plan is an important way to protect those you love. If you die without a will in place, state laws addressing dying intestate take effect. Your wishes regarding how your assets are distributed or who will care for minor children may not be known or followed.

While it is understandable why people avoid drafting estate plans — no one wants to contemplate death, after all — the consequences of not having a will and other documents in place can create havoc for survivors.

It is also important to work with an estate planning lawyer who will take the time to carefully review your situation and tailor all estate planning documents to your unique needs. We create estate plans in a client-friendly environment, cutting through the legal jargon so our clients have a full understanding of what they are accomplishing with the estate plan they create.
