Estate planning doesn’t have to be hard, and we can help.

Estate Planning Lawyers in Lawrenceville, GA
Estate planning. The words alone frighten some people, while others may think it’s just for the very wealthy. The truth is that estate planning is very important to all people, particularly for families with young children. While there may not be a need for complicated tax planning strategies due to a high level of assets, parents of minor children still need a solid estate plan to ensure that they have appropriately provided for their child or children should something happen to one or both parents. A recent survey (January 2017) found that only about 42% of adults had a will or trust in place. If you haven’t done some basic planning, you may leave a complicated mess behind when you die for your loved ones to deal with. Planning doesn’t have to be hard or complicated, and we routinely work with clients to help them understand their options and put together their estate plan in an efficient manner. We strive to make it as easy as possible.
The Beck Law Firm provides estate planning services designed to meet the needs of individuals and families. Basic planning documents typically include a Last Will and Testament, an Advance Directive for Healthcare (Georgia’s living will), and a Durable Power of Attorney. Other planning tools can be used where appropriate. Following a detailed interview with you, we can draft the necessary documents to meet your needs. We typically provide these services on a fixed-fee basis so that our clients know with certainty what their cost will be to complete their basic planning documents.
To help you understand the basics of several common estate planning tools – a Will, Durable Power of Attorney, and the Advance Directive for Healthcare – Joel has created these short, informational videos:
