Estate Planning

Estate Planning Lawyer in Redlands, CA

elderly coupleNo one likes thinking about life after they are gone. Yet, planning for the inevitable is smart — even though it may be uncomfortable. Fortunately, estate planning doesn’t have to be scary with the right legal help. Even if you do not have many assets, an estate plan is an essential component of planning for the future.

Unfortunately, most people put off “end of life” planning until it is too late. Once you are sick or incapacitated, planning out your estate can be burdensome and difficult. Even worse, if you fail to draft a solid estate plan before your death, your loved ones may be left going through lengthy and time-consuming probate while grieving.

At the Haynes Law Firm, we can give you peace of mind now, while helping you prepare for the future. With our help, you can rest easier knowing that your loved ones and your estate are protected no matter what the future holds. Call us today to learn more about estate planning and how we can help you!

Personalized Estate Planning Designed For You

In California, a solid estate plan is more than just drafting a Will. It involves a deeper look into your estate and to your lifestyle. It involves examining a variety of circumstances and drafting a plan that gives you the flexibility and freedom you need.

Our Redlands estate planning lawyers know that no two estate plans are ever quite the same. That is why we tackle each one personally after meeting with you to discuss your needs, your fears, and your goals. We want to be sure we protect what you value most and that means listening to our clients carefully. Our one-on-one approach means that you are not left with a cookie-cutter estate plan. Instead, we take the time to draft only the documents you need and the ones that will serve you best.

At Haynes Law Firm, our Redlands estate planning lawyers can help you create the critical components of a solid estate plan, including:

  • A Will. A will helps you determine who will care for your minor children and who will inherit your estate. Even if you do not have many assets, a will is an essential part of an estate plan.
  • A Living Trust. A trust can help you divide up your property and designate beneficiaries while you are still alive. You can appoint someone to be your trustee (yourself if you are able). This trustee has access to your estate throughout your life and upon death, those assets are transferred to heirs without the need to go through lengthy probate. This is a flexible option for many individuals.
  • General Power of Attorney. This document appoints someone else the authority to make decisions regarding your finances and property if you suddenly become incapacitated.
  • Advance Health Care Directive. This is similar to a power of attorney. However, instead of granting someone authority over your finances, this person will have authority over your health care decisions. This document appoints a trusted family member or friend to carry out your wishes regarding end-of-life treatment, as well as whether to donate organs when you die.

While these are the most common, there are other estate planning tools and documents that may benefit your specific situation. To determine what estate planning documents may be best for you, we invite you to come and sit down with us. Our Redlands estate planning attorneys have experience helping individuals in the Inland Empire and throughout the state of California plan for the future and for their death.
