Wills, Trusts And Powers Of Attorney In North Carolina

Planning for the future involves more than just declaring heirs and beneficiaries of your assets. How will those assets be transferred? Will your heirs and beneficiaries experience any losses when they are gifted? What happens if you become incapacitated and cannot manage your own affairs anymore?

These are questions that can be answered through a secure and thorough estate plan. Tools like wills, trusts and powers of attorney provide a way to address a wide range of long-term medical and financial contingencies for you and your loved ones.

Experienced Estate Planning Can Truly Influence Your Future

It is vital that you work with an experienced attorney who can ensure that your estate plan is tailored to your individual needs. Do not risk drafting an incomplete or insufficient will, trusts and powers of attorney that will only lead to estate litigation and contested issues later on.

At Baker Law Firm, we offer experienced counsel for a wide range of complex estate issues across North Carolina, including:

  • Preserving your assets while retaining eligibility for benefit programs like Medicare
  • Minimizing estate losses in asset transfer to heirs and beneficiaries
  • Ensuring financial protections for minors or adult children with special needs
  • Declaring medical or financial power of attorney rights to individuals you trust

Despite the obvious benefits of planning ahead, few people take the initiative to establish an estate plan unless they have children or are reaching retirement age. Even people with minimal assets and no dependents should consider getting their estate in order legally. At the very least, you will have a plan for yourself in the event of your own incapacitation.
