Benefits of Hiring a Trust & Estate Lawyer

You might be wondering, “can I plan my own estate or draft my own will or trust?” While the answer is technically, “yes,” we would caution you – planning an estate is no easy task. Certain state and federal laws and standards need to be met and, without proper guidance by an experienced attorney, you might make mistakes that result in your estate not being distributed the way you want. Or worse – you may lost all control.

Your legacy isn’t something you want to take a risk on. Let the estate attorneys at Thorsen Legal help you with your succession planning so that your estate is professionally drafted and tailored to your needs. The peace of mind is worth the cost.

Whether you are just starting your estate plan or want an attorney to review or revise an existing one, we are here to help. Our attorneys stay up-to-date on the ever-changing trust, estate and tax laws. And as your family and wealth grow, we can advise on how to adjust your estate plan accordingly.

Who Gets My Estate if I Don’t Have a Plan?

If you don’t have a valid estate plan, your assets get distributed in accordance with state probate laws. While state rules are all unique, some states distribute all your property to your spouse, or split it equally between your spouse and children. If you don’t have a spouse or children, it gets more complicated, with parents, siblings, and cousins receiving portions of your estate, or it all going to the state if you’re not survived by anyone.
