Efficient Estate Planning To Protect Your Future
Taking proactive steps through an estate plan provides peace of mind to you and your family members. You can take control of important medical decisions should you become incapacitated and ensure that your children will be provided for should something happen to you and/or your spouse.
Practical Advice And Creative Solutions
I am attorney Paul Petrillo. For more than 15 years, I have provided personalized representation for Merrimack Valley residents needing estate planning help. Handling thousands of divorces and bankruptcy filings has involved significant interaction with clients from various backgrounds combined with insight into family dynamics.
Specific areas of my estate planning practice include:
- Wills — A simple will serves as a preventative measure to ensure that children are provided for should you die. The document can also include a health care proxy that allows family members to provide necessary medical information should you become incapacitated.
- Trusts — With many clients, the need for trusts comes from discussions regarding their wills. Establishing a trust makes life a bit easier for families grieving a loss. An executor oversees asset distribution, a process that is far less intrusive and far more cost-effective than having the courts handle it.
I will spend the time necessary with you to understand your specific needs and objectives, and tailor the appropriate strategies to draft the necessary documents that will achieve your goals. From the initial consultation to the finalization of a will or trust, I remain accessible via telephone or in person.
