Control the distribution of your hard-earned assets

Regardless of where you are in your life — your age, your family dynamics, your net worth, or the complexity of your estate — it’s important to start estate planning right away. The simplest reason being that if you pass away without so much as a will, the government decides what happens to your property through a default process. That process involves unknown expenses, a legal proceeding wherein information about your loved ones and your assets become a matter of public record, a long time commitment, and stress that your family and loved ones could otherwise avoid.

At Thomas-Walters Estate Planning, we believe your estate plan can and should reflect the quirks and complexities of your life. Are you unmarried but want to provide a financial safety net for your partner? Is there a special needs individual in your life that you need to make sure is properly provided for? Do you want to leave money specifically for your grandchildren’s education? Whatever the case may be, estate planning offers countless opportunities to decide where your hard-earned assets go when you pass away.

We can help you accomplish your goals with a variety of individualized legal services and strategies, including:

  • Revocable Living Trusts
  • Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts
  • Special Needs Trusts
  • Children’s Inheritance Trusts
  • IRA Trusts
  • Pet Trusts
