It is never too early or too late to plan for your family's future. Estate planning can protect you from excessive probate taxes and minimize your overall estate taxes. You have worked hard for your money, and you want to protect it from creditors, taxes, and the government. You want someone to assist you with medical and financial decisions if you become mentally incapacitated and unable to make those decisions yourself. You want your children protected if you pass away young. You want your Estate to be protected if you require long-term nursing care. You want your Estate to be distributed to your beneficiaries with the least possible hassle, time, and costs. Shie Law office has the expertise and legal experience to assist you with these estate planning issues. The Shie Law Office knows the legal system well and has the tools to solve all of your legal matters. Attorney Shie will analyze your particular circumstances and provide you with recommendations and guidance for implementation of the tools necessary to accomplish your goal.
