Helping You Plan For The Future
Though most people do not enjoy contemplating their mortality, estate planning is an important part of adult life that everyone should complete while they are mentally and physically healthy.
At Cook & Associates, we help our clients plan for all scenarios and put safeguards in place to protect themselves and their families. We can help you manage your assets both during your lifetime and after you’ve passed. We also provide representation for clients tasked with probate proceedings.
Our Estate Planning Services
We help our clients with a variety of estate planning tasks, including, but not limited to:
- Estate administration
- Planning wills and trusts
- Living wills
- Powers of attorney
- Advance health care directives
- Orderly distribution of assets
- Contested wills
- Inheritance tax
All estates must eventually be settled after their owner passes on. This process is called probate, and nearly all estates are subject to it. If you have been named as the executor of an estate, there are a number of actions you must take in order to legally close the estate. This includes notifying all creditors of the trustee’s death, informing beneficiaries what they will inherit, paying any remaining bills or taxes, and more. This process can be overwhelming to the layperson, which is why our seasoned attorneys are here to guide you every step of the way.
