When contemplating your mortality, you want to ensure that all of your loved ones are fully provided for. At Strauss Attorneys, PLLC, located in Asheville and Hendersonville, North Carolina, we have vast knowledge and extensive experience establishing a variety of estate planning documents, from the simple will to complex trust strategies.
Experience in Establishing Wills and Trusts
Regardless of your net worth, you want to ensure that those close to you are well taken care of while you are alive and following your death. A carefully drafted will or specially tailored trust may accomplish this task. At Strauss Attorneys, PLLC, we will take the time to listen to your goals, explain the law and determine which estate planning design, a will and/or living trust, is appropriate for your particular situation. If you have significant assets our experienced estate planning attorneys can help you utilize strategies, such as trusts, to preserve wealth, minimize taxes, and protect inheritances from creditors and predators.
Establishing Special Needs Trusts
A special needs trust sets aside money for a family member who is in need of special and continuous care, such as round-the-clock medical treatment or nursing home stays. A special needs trust can ensure that your spouse, son, daughter or sibling receives the care and attention they need and deserve.
The Need for Pet and Equine Trusts
Pet and equine trusts are especially popular among animal enthusiasts. While some may scoff at the notion of a pet trust, the cost of ongoing care for a dog, cat or horse can add up quickly. For many of our clients, they are not just an animal, but also a member of the family. Setting aside money to ensure care for your animal continues after you are gone is a wise and proactive step.
