If you are like many people who need legal advice to plan for the distribution of assets upon death, you may have neglected to put together a plan because you are uncertain about the costs. You may be unwilling to commit to have the work done when you don’t have a solid understanding of what your financial outlay will be.

The Law Office of Gilman & Francis, LLC, in Norwalk, Connecticut, takes away that fear. The firm provides estate planning services on a flat-fee basis. You will know the exact cost of your estate planning services before you start the process. Contact the firm to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your estate planning needs.

Flat Fee Estate Planning Services

The estate planning process starts with a one-on-one consultation with one of the partners who will listen to your needs and gather the required information. The partner will take the time to learn about your assets and obligations, as well as your goals and objectives.

The firm can help you understand the different strategies available to meet your goals, including the preparation of documents that instruct your heirs how to divide your property after your death, as well as actions that can be taken now, such as gifting and the re-titling of assets. The firm will make certain that you understand the advantages and disadvantages of each approach, particularly with respect to the tax consequences and the avoidance of the probate process.

Once you and the firm have decided on a specific approach, the firm will prepare and implement the documents required to put your plan into place, which may include:

  • Wills
  • Pet Trusts
  • Living Trusts
  • Revocable Trusts
  • Irrevocable Trusts
  • Testamentary Trusts
  • Life insurance Trusts
  • Special needs Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advance medical directives/living Wills
