Plan For Your Legacy And Your Family's Future

Many people harbor misconceptions about estate planning. They may think it is too expensive, or only necessary for the very wealthy. They may find the language of lawyers intimidating, or they may simply feel uncomfortable with the topic.

In fact, estate planning can be helpful for all kinds of individuals and families. Your estate plan can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be.

At Van Dillen & Flood, P.C., we are committed to helping people like you create wills, trusts and other estate planning documents to provide for your loved ones and your favorite charities. We aim to make the process simple and affordable, and to tailor your plan to suit your needs and wishes.

Establish Your Goals

Our skilled estate planning attorneys begin by having you fill out a form outlining your long-term goals and wishes. From there, we offer suggestions and discuss the options so that you decide how to put your plans in place.

Whether our clients need a relatively simple will and power of attorney, or something more complex like revocable trusts, we help them build plans that can protect their assets and build a legacy that will last for many years to come.

Help With Probate

Most estates must go through a legal process called probate. In probate, a court reviews wills or other materials to administer the distribution of property.

Probate can be time-consuming and expensive, and some types of estate plans are designed to avoid the process altogether. However, when probate is necessary, it can be crucial to have the help of skilled attorneys who know how to shepherd an estate through the process.
