Do I really need an Estate Plan?

If you are recently engaged, married, or divorced, it’s vital to understand how your property is titled, what exactly that titling means, and how you can ensure that it will be distributed according to your wishes.

Has a member of your family passed away?

It is incredibly difficult to lose a loved one, and understanding what steps need to be taken following their death can be overwhelming. Our attorneys know what needs to be done with the Courts and how to navigate Maryland Law. Reach out for our assistance.

How do I protect my assets?

Above all, we aim to ensure that your property will be protected and distributed according to your wishes. In addition, our goal is to make sure that your property receives the best available treatment under the tax laws.

Will my spouse inherit everything?

The answer to this depends on a variety of factors, including whether you have living parents, children, and other “issue.” The better question is: Don’t you want to be in charge of deciding who will receive your property?

How expensive is an Estate Plan?

We do everything in our power to provide premier legal services at rates you can afford, which is why we work directly with each client to provide packaged legal services at fixed, flat rates with which we know they are comfortable.

Am I too young for an Estate Plan?

Life is full of surprises: both good and bad. It’s safe to say that you don’t often go wrong by being prepared for the unexpected. We know the value of having a plan for the future, and we want to guide you in crafting yours.
