St. Paul, Minnesota, Estate Planning Lawyer
An estate plan is a plan for the preservation of your wealth during your lifetime and the disposition of your assets at your death. A good estate plan will also include documents that protect you in the event of some sort of temporary incapacity. Whenever you have assets or children you need to protect an estate plan is essential.
If you already have an estate plan, it can become necessary to update that plan when a significant life change occurs. Such changes may be when you have divorced, married or remarried, or recently lost a spouse or significant partner. In these situations, since your finances and preferences have changed, it is essential that you safeguard your new future.
While discussing the disposition of your assets can be stressful, without an estate plan you could be leaving your family with significant financial uncertainty.
At Adams Schinzing P.A., I offer comprehensive estate planning for clients across the Twin Cities-Seven County metropolitan areas — including guardianships, health care directives, powers of attorney, wills and trusts.
Merriam Park and Ramsey County Probate Attorney
In addition to estate planning, I can help when you lose a friend or family member. It may be necessary at the death of a loved one to seek legal assistance to help you determine if a probate is necessary. I assist personal representatives, heirs and beneficiaries in finding the most cost effective manner to transfer assets and administer the affairs of the estate. Many people are unaware of the complication in probate — a single mistake can be costly to the personal representative, creating unnecessary legal fees that can diminish the estate.
My experience enables me to quickly assess the estate documents, work with any outstanding creditors, and transfer the real estate or real property. As your lawyer, I will work closely with the personal representative to settle the estate as expeditiously and cost-effectively as possible, leaving the estate to those for whom it was intended: the heirs.
