Dorothea J. Kingsbury Estate Planning & Probate Attorney

Helping you draft the best estate plan for you

Thinking about the future and the end of your life is not pleasant. However, we are all human beings, and we all must face the fact that we will not be around forever. Certain life events often trigger us to think about planning for our future and protecting our loved ones. Whether it is a new job, the purchase of a home, the birth of a child, the diagnosis of a disease or retirement, many life events can spark the estate planning process.

No matter if you decide to start the process when you are young and healthy or have opted to wait until you are older, the estate planning process requires you to think about your ultimate goals and what documents will help you best achieve them. At Dorothea J. Kingsbury Attorney at Law, our experienced legal team can help you understand all the steps you can take when drafting an estate plan. We are dedicated to serving individuals and families in the Cleveland area navigate the process, helping them end up with a strong and valid estate plan.

The estate planning process can be overwhelming. It not only requires you to think about all the assets and properties you own, it requires you to think about what heirs and beneficiaries you want to pass them on to. In addition to considering who will get what when you pass, which is designated in a will, individuals are also worried about protecting their assets, reducing estate taxes and avoiding probate. In these instances, a trust might serve you well. Our legal team can help you determine what type is trust is best for your particular situation, ensuring it will also effectively work with your other estate planning documents and beneficiary designations.

Finally, an estate plan could also entail documents that detail what will happen if you are deemed incapacitated. A health care directive and a power of attorney could serve you well. These documents can designate who will be able to make financial and medical decisions on your behalf. They can prove to be very beneficial and necessary documents if you suddenly become ill and can no longer care for yourself.
