Life and Estate Planning Lawyer in Washington, D.C. and Maryland

The estate plan you build today can be your final gift to those you love most — leaving assets and property to specifically named beneficiaries. However, the process of developing an estate plan is not limited to drafting wills and trusts. It also includes identifying people who can act and speak on a person’s behalf if they are unable to do so themselves. It states clearly how an individual wishes to be treated in the last days or weeks before death. Finally, a complete estate plan involves establishing arrangements for minor children and any others who may need special protection. In other words: what some call estate planning is really life planning.
