Estate and Trust Planning

Kalamazoo Attorney / Lawyer

Estate Planning involves some of the most important decisions we make in our lives but also can be one of the most confusing and frustrating processes we encounter. Choosing the right attorney, that you have confidence in and who understands you and your family, is vitally important.

At the Law Office of Benjamin J. Herbert, we understand that every person has different goals and ideas, therefore we take a comprehensive but simple and easy to understand approach to Estate Planning that includes not only planning for your family but also the appropriate steps to take care of you in cases of emergencies, such as Powers of Attorney and Medical Patient Advocate Designation forms. Our initial meeting has no cost associated with it and is designed to allow for you to ask questions and to get to know us before you make the decision to hire. At this initial meeting, we will go over your family dynamics, assets, future aspirations, etc. and you will be presented with options that make sense for you, after which you will have the opportunity to decide what option works best for you and your family.

Potential options we may consider:

  • Trust Planning and Probate Avoidance
  • Last Will and Testament Planning
  • Durable Power of Attorneys
  • Designation of Medical Patient Advocate Forms
  • Special Needs (Amenities) Planning
  • Long Term Care and Nursing Home Costs Planning
