It’s not hard. It’s not painful. And it’s not something you should keep putting off. Take control of your estate, or the state will take control of it for you…and that can’t be good. Avoid the government intrusion, the extended court process and the forever-in-doubt results by simply getting it done.

Wills and Trusts

There are a couple different options for a basic estate plan; a simple will and a revocable/living trust. Both allow you to designate beneficiaries for your assets and name people to take over financial responsibility for your estate. From there, these two types of estate plans vary both in function and cost. The attorneys at SeilerSchindel walk through the pros and cons of both approaches with so our client can make an informed decision on which direction to go.
