Your Estate Plan Should Reflect Your Life And Those You Love

Estate planning involves putting the necessary legal documents in place to protect one's assets and make sure they pass to loved ones in the manner they choose. Many people mistakenly believe estate plans are for people who have accumulated significant wealth. The truth is, if you have loved ones in your life and any amount of assets, you should have an estate plan in place.

At the Law Office of Alec Harshey in Hemet, California, we help individuals create estate plans that are tailored to their specific goals. We bring the same personal approach to our estate planning clients that we provide in all other areas of law that we practice. The result is a client-friendly atmosphere in which we will take the time to fully explain what different estate planning tools accomplish and why they may make sense for you.

The Estate Plan Essentials

In many ways, estate plans are as unique as each individual who creates one. However, there are basic components that every estate plan should feature. This includes:

In addition, clients may wish to establish trusts that address unique aspects of their estate plan needs. A trust holds property separately and can accomplish a number of specific goals.

Navigating Probate

Our estate planning services also include assisting clients with the probate, which is essentially the court-supervised process of gathering a decedent's assets, paying all creditors and distributing the remaining assets to beneficiaries per the instructions left in a will.
