Careful planning is required to assure that in the event of incapacitation or death, a person’s decisions and intentions will be reliably and competently carried out.
When people can no longer take care of their own affairs, court-appointed individuals may make decisions on their behalf, manage their assets or administer their estates after death. While Crowley, Hoge & Fein attorneys assist in arranging these appointments, they also prepare durable powers of attorney, medical powers of attorney, living wills and other planning documents that often eliminate the need for costly court oversight.
Estate plans-the titling of assets, lifetime giving arrangements, wills, trusts and other provisions-are essential in protecting assets before and after death. Good planning by our attorneys substantially reduces client tax burdens and legal expenses, too.
