No matter your age, marital status or financial situation, having an effective estate plan in place is important. It can provide you with peace of mind regarding what will happen to your assets if something should happen to you unexpectedly. An estate plan can also outline your wishes regarding your health care and finances, and who will make decisions for you if you can no longer make decisions for yourself.
At the law firm of Leonard F. Berg, Attorney at Law, we offer more than 30 years of experience helping people create customized estate plans. We take a comprehensive approach to planning, considering all of your needs and goals, and tailoring your plan to fit your individual needs.
