Estate Planning Attorney | St Charles County
Planning Your Estate Matters
For many people, it may be unpleasant to think of what will happen after they die or if they become mentally or physically incapacitated. For this reason, they may find it easy to put more immediate concerns ahead of estate planning. However, there can be negative consequences to not having a valid estate plan. Your estate may be subject to higher taxes. Disputes may arise among heirs. Property becomes subject to division based on probate laws of the state of Missouri, not the wishes of the decedent.
Estate planning attorney Mike Watkins has the knowledge and experience to help you avoid these problems. We encourage our clients to let their wishes be known for the division of property and potential health care decisions. We do this by drafting documents, such as the following:
- Health Care Directives
- Living Wills
- Powers of Attorney
- Probate Administration
- Personal Representatives, Guardians, Trustees
- Special Needs Trusts
- Trust Administration
The Watkins Law Firm understands that estate planning is not "one size fits all." This is why we take the time to carefully discuss the individual needs of each client. We present options that take into account preferences for funeral arrangements, appointment of a representative, care of children, division of property among heirs, and wishes for medical treatment.
