At Gagliardi Law LLP we understand that people of all ages are reluctant to talk about death and dying. Unfortunately, not having a plan in place can add to an already stressful situation for the loved ones left behind. Just as each individual is different, so is each estate plan.
Our attorneys work diligently to help you understand your alternatives and choose the right plan. In the state of Wisconsin, we have several tools for estate planning such as wills, trusts, beneficiary designations for retirement and life insurance policies, payable on death accounts, transfer on death deeds and more. To be effective, the requirements that must be met for these types of estate planning techniques are intricate and complicated.
Often times people think that they have no need for a plan, but in reality, everyone does. If you have children, who will take care of them if something happens to you? If you do not have children, who will receive your property if something happens to you? What happens if you get married, divorced or adopt a child? These are just a few of the considerations to discuss when you meet with Gagliardi Law LLP for your initial free consultation.
And for those that do not believe they need a will, it is still very important to meet with a competent attorney to prepare powers of attorney for healthcare and financial matters. If you become incapacitated, these documents are critical to allow a friend or loved one to pay your bills, assist with your business or make health care decisions for you. Gagliardi Law LLP prides itself on guiding you through the process and creating documents designed to fit your circumstances and achieve your goals.
