Creating And Defending Estate Plans
An estate plan is designed to allow individuals to dictate how they would like their assets handled when they pass away, and it can be used to identify medical wishes in end-of-life situations. When everything works correctly, estate plans can be a great planning for eliminating arguments or confusion. At the law office of Carluzzo Rochkind & Smith, P.C., we help individuals create estate plans in Manassas, Prince William, Manassas Park, Gainesville, Haymarket, Woodbridge, Lake Ridge, Dumfries, Bristow, Warrenton, Centreville, Fairfax, Stafford, Chantilly, Leesburg, Ashburn, Sterling, Herndon, Reston, Alexandria, Annandale, Arlington, and throughout Northern Virginia. We also handle will contests when there are disagreements about the will.
Robust Estate Plans To Address Any Situation
When most people think about estate plans, they think about using wills and trusts to designate how their assets should be distributed. However, a good estate plan addresses more situations than just death. An experienced estate planning attorney can also create documents that dictate what should happen if a person becomes incapacitated and is unable to make medical or financial decisions for himself or herself. Our robust estate plans include:
- Powers of attorney
- Advance health care directives
- Living wills
Defending The Wishes Of The Estate Or The Wishes In The Will
When there are disputes about what was intended by the wishes expressed in the will, or if there are disputes as to whether the will was changed because of undue influence, it’s critical to talk with an aggressive lawyer who can help protect your rights. We are a trial-centered firm, and we can help identify and enforce the intentions and wishes of the decedent.
