Estate Planning in Massachusetts

Many adult children of elderly parents find themselves in need of guidance when charged with putting their parents’ affairs in order. Understanding the documentation and preparation of records needed, our attorneys will work closely with you to provide for the needs of your mother, father, or other family member.

Our estate planning lawyers advise, counsel, and represent clients in the following areas:

  • Probate of Estates
  • Health Care Proxies
  • Special Needs Trusts
  • Wills and Trusts
  • Powers of Attorney
  • End of Life Decisions

If something were to happen to you tomorrow, do you know what would happen to your assets? Have you left behind legal documentation governing the allocation of your assets and the transfer of your property to your intended beneficiaries? Failure to leave behind proper estate planning documents can result in costly, time-consuming probate hearings for surviving family members, or leave your assets to the state or people who are not deserving of them.

At the law firm of Feinberg & Alban, P.C. our lawyers explore trust and will arrangements that facilitate the easy resolution of your specific estate planning needs. Understanding how to avoid potential problems is an important component in every estate plan. Our estate planning attorneys guide you through tax considerations, asset distribution options, and other issues to ensure your wishes are carried out.

Planning for life events

Estate planning involves more than the distribution of your assets after you are gone. It can also help you maintain, increase, and plan for the proper use of your assets during your lifetime. Estate planning might include setting up a trust to fulfill your obligations to your children under a divorce judgment, while protecting it from the interference of your ex-spouse. It might include protecting the value of your business—or other assets—in the event of your disability.

Advance directives

Estate planning should also include advance directives concerning your health and medical care such as your Health Care Proxy and Living Will. We can help you make sure that your health care conforms to your beliefs and wishes if you should become unable to communicate them in the future.

Probate

Proper estate planning can provide immeasurable reassurance in the present and a smooth transition in the future. At Feinberg & Alban, P.C., our attorneys are equipped to offer the best to individuals and small businesses in estate planning advice. We remain abreast of current changes in tax and probate law, and, in turn, are better able to set up your estate to maximize the preservation of your assets for your heirs or other loved ones.
