Estate Planning

What Will Your Legacy Be?
Many people think that in order to have an “estate plan,” they need to have a significant amount of assets that will be distributed upon their death; maybe even enough to worry about estate taxes. While taxes are important, and certainly can be a top consideration in an estate plan, taxes are not the only reason why you should have an estate plan.

At Burton Law, estate planning is about your legacy – the people you care about, and how to minimize the burden of your death or incapacitation on them while making sure your wishes are met. We will work with you to protect your desires in connection with end-of-life decisions regarding health care.  We will help you design a plan that provides for the efficient distribution of your assets to your loved ones and favorite charitable organizations. At Burton Law, we focus on listening to you, and specifically design your estate plan to meet your unique circumstances.

To achieve these goals, Burton Law helps clients develop their estate plan through advising and preparation of the following:

  • Last Will & Testaments
  • Trusts
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Health Care Directives

Estate Administration
In the unfortunate event that a loved one has passed away, Burton Law is here to assist you with administering the decedent’s estate. This may involve trust administration, a combination of the two, or neither, depending upon the circumstances of the case. We are here to work with you, and guide you through the process in the most efficient means possible.
