Saugus Estate Planning And Real Estate Lawyer
Picasso once said, "Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone." Following his death in 1973, the painter's heirs, including his widow, Jacqueline Roque, squabbled for six years over distribution of thousands of paintings, sculptures and drawings worth hundreds of millions of dollars. According to a New York Times report, the family then differed over how to exercise their communal right to exploit the Picasso name commercially until a French court settled the issue in 1989.
Your assets may not carry the value nor the complexity of Picasso's, but you would be wise to take his advice and not postpone a critical task that shouldn't be left undone: the development of a comprehensive estate plan. At the Law Offices of Nelson Chang in Saugus, I help my clients protect loved ones and plan for the future with wills, trusts and other important estate planning tools.
I also assist residents throughout northeast Massachusetts in the full scope of real estate law, including purchases and sales, foreclosures, zoning matters and landlord-tenant issues.
Protecting Your Assets And Providing For Loved Ones
Too many individuals with significant assets believe that drawing up an estate planning is something you do later in life. A surprising number consider estate plans instruments of the wealthy. Both beliefs are far from accurate.
If you have family or others you love, and if you have accumulated even a modest amount of assets, it is important to create legal documents that state who should receive those assets upon your death. It is also important to designate a trusted individual to manage your affairs upon your death or make medical and financial decisions for you in the event that you become incapacitated.
I help my clients put these plans in place through the use of wills and trusts, health care directives and durable powers of attorney. With nearly 40 years of experience helping residents of Saugus and surrounding cities, I have established a strong reputation as a knowledgeable lawyer who provides highly personalized service.
Your Estate Plan Should Fit Your Unique Needs
Establishing a high-quality attorney-client relationship is critical in estate planning, perhaps more so than with any other practice area. I invest a great deal of time early in the process to learn about each client's unique situation in order to develop objectives that suit his or her needs.
