The attorneys at Holdsworth Law Firm believe in providing traditional legal care. That means we work feverishly to create long-term personal relationships and encourage questions and communications with the members of our firm.
Our firm provides comprehensive legal services in the Estate Planning field that focuses on two related areas: Trust, Will and Ancillary Document Preparation and Trust Administration and Probate.
Proper estate planning will ensure that all of your affairs are handled in accordance with your wishes without the long delays, high costs, court involvement and public scrutiny encountered in all probate court proceedings. Large tax savings, although a substantial consideration, are by no means the only benefit estate planning offers, or even the most important. Proper planning will also give you peace of mind knowing that your loved ones will be well taken care of should you die or become incapacitated. Preserving your assets and keeping your estate out of the courts is our primary goal.
Estate planning is no longer a subject reserved only for the wealthy. Current laws make many homeowners in Arizona without an estate plan subject to the jurisdiction of the probate courts in the event of death. The laws encourage, however, the creation of living trusts, because they ease the congestion in the courts and allow your family members to handle your affairs in private. In my experience, people want to plan their personal and financial affairs, (or at least know they should) but never get around to doing so because of the intimidating complexity of estate planning. I hope that the information I have provided to you will give you confidence to start an estate plan.
We understand that things do not always go to plan. Regardless of the problem, Holdsworth Law Firm, P.C. remains dedicated to ensuring that the final wishes of your loved one are honored and respected. If you need legal assistance after the passing of a loved one, please contact our firm for a FREE consultation where we will troubleshoot the problem and provide our opinion on the appropriate course for resolution. As always, we will be frank in our legal advice and fees.
