The universe of estate planning: complex and important

"Plan for the future."

That is a simple admonition that applies generally and broadly across virtually every facet of life.

And it certainty holds true regarding estate planning. The above words are from the estate administration and planning page of our website at Brumfield & Hagan, LLP. From our Kern County offices in Bakersfield, we provide carefully considered and tailored representation to estate planners across the virtual universe of considerations.

Whether you are a testator, beneficiary, executor, administrator or other party with a planning interest, we will work closely with you to help ensure that your interests are protected and legal rights fully promoted.

There are many instruments that play a close and vital role in estate planning. Today we mention wills, which are unquestionably a centrally important document for conveying a planner's intent following his or her passing.

Just consider: If you die without having executed a will, as noted in a recent article discussing the importance of a will in virtually all estate planning scenarios, "you cede control to the state."

In other words: Key decisions regarding the disposition of your assets -- and in some instances, the future of your children -- will be made by a judge who knows nothing about the life you led, your intentions regarding inheritances and legacy considerations, the needs of family members and so forth. Truly, sans a will, you have ceded control over your estate.

That certainly doesn't need to be the case. An experienced estate planning law firm routinely helps clients identify what is important to them and take legal steps to ensure that desired planning aims are promoted through tailored strategies and careful documentation.
