Your Estate Plan Should Reflect Your Life

It's A Heartfelt Expression Of Love

Too often, individuals work hard, save diligently and invest wisely, but fail to put proper legal documents in place to protect themselves, their assets and their loved ones. At The Waldrop Firm, P.C., in Germantown, we help individuals create comprehensive estate plans or update existing plans. Either way, you will be certain that your wishes regarding the distribution of your assets and end-of-life health care treatment will be clear and easy to follow.

Over the years, attorney David M. Waldrop has helped hundreds of individuals create estate plans that provide peace of mind. Estate plans are essential, affordable and not just for wealthy individuals or couples. If you own assets of any kind, and if you have loved ones in your life, you need to have an estate plan in place.

The foundation of any estate plan should include:

  • A will that spells out your wishes for the distribution of your assets upon your death
  • The designation of a legal guardian who will care for any minor children in the event that both parents die or are unable to care for their children
  • Durable powers of attorney for health care and financial decisions so a trusted individual can make important decisions for you if you become incapacitated and unable to make them for yourself
  • Trusts that can accomplish specific needs such as minimizing taxes, passing assets to children from a previous marriage or supplementing the care of a special needs child while ensuring that he or she continues to receive government benefits

Easy And Affordable So There Is No Reason To Procrastinate

Many individuals who do not have an estate plan in place say, "I just haven't gotten around to it." We make the process easy and affordable. In most cases, we can get all of the information we need to develop your estate plan in a single meeting. "Not getting around to it" is not a valid reason to not have these important documents in place.
