Cambridge Estate Planning Lawyers

Our Cambridge estate planning lawyers know that estate planning is often a daunting and unpleasant activity, but knowing that loved ones will be cared for after one’s death gives many a sense of relief and security.

The proper preparation of an estate plan is not a matter to be taken lightly. It is essential that your plan not only accurately reflects your wishes, but that it is also enforceable in probate. There are many formalities and traps in estate planning and, without proper care, your plan could have undesired consequences or, even worse, could fail.

A proper estate plan should not only provide for the disposition of your probate and non-probate assets, but it should also provide for continuity in the event you become incapacitated. At a minimum, an estate plan should consist of at least a will, a durable power of attorney, a health-care proxy and, if applicable, an Emergency Guardianship Proxy. Depending on your personal desires and financial situation, it might also be prudent to include a trust in your plan.

Before a free consultation, we will ask you to complete an estate planning questionnaire so our Cambridge estate planning lawyers can know the particulars of your estate. At the consultation, Ionson Law will work with you to understand your estate planning desires and goals and present you with a variety of options to meet them, while keeping a close eye on tax consequences.
