Estate Planning & Elder Law
Estate Planning is a comprehensive effort to examine the assets owned by an individual or a married couple and develop a plan to coordinate the distribution of property and assets upon death, minimize the expenses of probate, eliminate or reduce state tax liability and insulate your family’s inheritance from creditors.
Elder Law is a field of law that describes an area of legal practice that places an emphasis on those issues that affect the growing aging population.
Thomas F. Williams & Associates, P.C. is committed to providing quality, personalized services to our clients in the areas of estate planning and elder law. There are numerous documents that should be created as you and your family members’ age. The interaction of these documents with the probate laws, estate tax laws and income tax laws is critical in preparing a successful estate planning.
A Typical Estate Plan Consists of:
- Powers of Attorney
- Healthcare Proxies
- Revocable Trusts
- Life Estates
Thomas F. Williams & Associates, P.C. helps seniors and their families deal with the legal issues we face as we age. The elder law, estate planning, Medicaid and probate attorneys of our firm provide legal assistance with Medicaid planning for long-term nursing home care, wills and trusts, and asset protection.
