Why Estate Planning Matters

Death — particularly our own death — is one of the most uncomfortable things we ever have to think about. But if we are brave enough to take the time to consider what our final wishes would be, then we can live our lives knowing plans are already in place for after we have gone.

At The Hickey Law Office, LLC, our principal lawyer, Erin E. Hickey, has practiced estate law for more than a decade. Our firm can work with your estate no matter what its size is, from something very modest up to $25 million dollars. Taking the initiative with estate planning frequently saves your entire family time, expense and emotional distress later.

Understanding The Entire Spectrum Of Estate Planning Needs

At our firm, Erin can help you create estate planning documents that cover your needs before you pass away, and your wishes for the distribution of your assets and property after you die.

Before you die, properly constructed and executed estate planning documents can help you:

  • Designate how you wish to receive treatment, expressed through an advance medical directive or a living will
  • Determine who you would like to make health care or other decisions on your behalf, via a power of attorney

After you die, if you have done careful estate planning, it is much more likely that:

  • Your final wishes for the distribution of your estate will be clearly expressed through wills and trusts
  • Minor or special needs children will receive the care they need because guardianship and financial decisions will already be outlined
  • Rules and structures will be in place for distributing sizable assets to minor children or loved ones who need guidance to properly utilize their inheritance
  • There will be few grounds for challenging your estate through litigation

We provide customized documents for every client. Our attorney draws upon her more than 15 years of experience to create an estate plan that will withstand legal scrutiny and provide solutions that address your individual circumstances.
