Estate Planning Attorney in Cupertino
Implementing Legal Structure for Your Family’s Future
If you’ve ever wondered what will happen to your assets upon your death, it is a good idea to enlist the help of a Cupertino estate planning lawyer. At the Law Offices of Daniel L. DuRee, our attorney can help you establish an effective estate plan that does more than dictate “who gets what” after you die. A solid estate plan also addresses your end-of-life legal concerns, such as long-term care or healthcare plans should you become incapacitated. Without an estate plan in place, it can cause frustration and heartache among your loved ones, who would have to face these time-consuming, emotional decisions on their own without your guidance.
Do I Need to Hire an Estate Planning Lawyer?
If you have any children, own real estate, or if your net worth exceed $150,000 (including investments), it’s important to hire an estate planning attorney to ensure the financial stability for your surviving kin.
With an enforceable, properly drafted estate plan, you can:
- Avoid probate
- Minimize your tax burden
- Protect your assets
- Plan for the future of any minor dependents
- Gain peace of mind for the future
You should be aware that it takes a sophisticated knowledge of estate planning law to draft wills, establish trusts, and have a familiarity with probate law. While you could attempt to go the DIY route if you study up on the law, you risk having an unenforceable estate plan. Without careful evaluation by a detail-oriented attorney familiar with California estate planning law, you risk having an unenforceable will, trust, or healthcare proxy. Depending on your unique needs and goals, an estate planning attorney can help you decide what would work best for your family, and do so in a way that is legally enforceable.
