Comprehensive Estate Planning That Carries Out Your Wishes and Meets Your Needs
Estate planning is about more than just drafting a will to distribute your estate after you are gone. It is also about protecting your assets and seeing to your personal care while you are still here, so you will know you are protected regardless of what comes your way. That’s why our Spokane estate planning attorneys take the time to sit down with you and make sure we understand your needs and desires so we can create the estate plan that works for you. We’ll provide you with a will, a revocable living trust, and a complete set of advance directives and powers of attorney to carry you through any period of incapacity as well as look after your property when you are gone, directing its distribution according to your wishes. If you have a home, a business, or a large estate bumping up against the Washington estate tax, we’ll provide you with quality advice and assistance tailored to your unique needs.
Elder Law Attorneys Protecting Your Assets and Maximizing Your Benefits
Elder law encompasses many legal issues facing adults around retirement age and older. A chief concern for many is being able to afford long-term care should the need arise. Medicaid can cover that cost, but strict Medicaid income requirements put many people between a rock and a hard place in deciding whether to hang on to their assets or spend them down to qualify for Medicaid. We can help you do both. Through thoughtful advance (pre-need) planning, we can employ strategies like Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts that protect your home and other property so you can qualify for Medicaid and afford long-term care without going broke in the process. If you find yourself in a Medicaid crisis, meaning you’ve already been admitted to a nursing home and need to qualify for Medicaid right away, we have strategies to help there as well.
Our Spokane elder law practice also includes helping veterans access VA benefits, including Aid and Attendance and Housebound benefits to help pay for care at home or in assisted living.
Probate Lawyers Providing Technical Assistance in Trust and Estate Administration
Our probate practice includes advising and helping estate administrators get through the probate or trust administration process efficiently and effectively, completing the many daunting tasks that await them as an executor, estate personal representative, or successor trustee. No one expects you to do all this alone; we are here to help with trusted advice and skilled professional assistance.
Our Spokane probate lawyers do all we can to help you minimize or avoid probate in our estate planning practice, and we are equally diligent in helping you get through probate cost-effectively with minimal headaches.
