Laguna Woods Will Lawyer

Protecting Your Assets & Your Family’s Future

No matter who we are or where we live, there is one thing which ties people together: family. Our families – or even our closest friends who have become like members of the family – give us motivation to work hard every day to provide for their well-being, not only now, but in the future as well. Planning a will and setting your goals in a binding, legal document is one of the most certain methods of ensuring your desires for your family’s care are followed when you pass.

However, making a will is much more complicated than it sounds. While it is technically possible to write one’s own will without legal guidance, at the Law Offices of Steven Giammichele, we strongly advise against it. Small errors and technicalities could result in increased estate taxes, meaning much of your hard-earned assets are siphoned away. Our Laguna Woods will attorney can aid you in preventing such loss.

Do I Need a Will in California?

It can sometimes be challenging to remind people to start thinking about their wills. Many consider themselves to be too young to begin contemplating tools for estate planning, such as trusts and wills. Others not only assume that wills are only for the elderly, but those with a lot of wealth to distribute. However, here at the Law Offices of Steven Giammichele, we greatly encourage people of all walks of life to create a will for their accumulated assets. No matter how much or little you have, it is important to think about the future. Our firm can help you with very basic plans for your property and income, or we can provide extensive, sophisticated preparations to distribute larger estates, whatever is necessary to accommodate your needs.

How We Can Help Your Will Preparations

If you want a great burden lifted from your shoulders, an experienced will attorney is the way to go. At the Law Offices of Steven Giammichele, we can make sure that your will draft leaves nothing out which could create more financial security for your family.

Moreover, our skilled attorney can advise you on several other key aspects of estate planning, including:

  • Deciding the beneficiary who would be in charge of having financial power of attorney
  • Giving specific permissions to certain individuals who you want to receive access to view and distribute monetary accounts
  • Making an “ethical will” which explains the specific reasons the deceased was choosing to distribute in certain ways

Empathetic Support

After many years, as it gets closer to the time to leave this world, we all want to make sure that our families are still taken care of, receiving the full benefits and fruits of our labor. For anyone who desires genuine, empathetic assistance in carefully organizing and distributing their assets in the case of incapacitation, injury, illness, or death, it is highly recommended to get in touch with our Laguna Woods will lawyer as soon as possible.
