Fundamental Estate Planning Information | Estate Planning Services

When people begin to think about estate planning, they usually focus on having a trust or a will drafted, and indeed this is a common component of a basic estate plan. But there are other estate planning tools that may provide you with more control, more privacy, less expense to your heirs, and quicker administration after your death. In addition, there are components to an estate plan that focus on you rather than on your property, spelling out how you wish to be cared for in the event of incapacity and who will make decisions on your behalf. At Knollmiller & Arenofsky, LLP, our estate planning lawyers review all these options with clients and develop a plan tailored to your situation, using methods that will result in the outcome you wish. For more information about our approach to basic estate planning, contact our East Valley law office today.

Elements of a basic estate plan

A complete estate plan covers virtually all possible contingencies. It includes provisions for disability, the death of both spouses, the needs of a minor or disabled child, and instructions for passing along a family business. Our attorneys develop plans for each situation using estate planning mechanisms such as:

  • Revocable living trust
  • Will
  • Pour-over will
  • Power of attorney for health care
  • General durable power of attorney
  • Living wills
  • Community property agreement

These elements of a basic estate plan allow you to control what happens to your property, how you will be cared for in the event of incapacity, and what your lifestyle (and that of your heirs after your death) will be.
