Let’s face it… you’ve worked long and hard for what you have, and the last thing you want is for the government, the courts, or someone you did not designate, to step in and take control of your assets when you are no longer able to make crucial decisions regarding your property and estate.

Protecting your assets for the benefit of your family and loved ones is not something to put off until some time in the future. There are just too many real-world examples where that kind of delay has proven to be tragic and a tremendous burden for those who are left behind.

Being able to make calm, reasoned, and informed decisions regarding your estate will give you a better outcome, and ensure that your wishes are met for passing along your assets to those people you want to have them.

The manner in which you do it, as well as the timing, may have implications as far as Federal and Florida estate taxes are concerned. That’s why it’s important to consult with an Estate Planning Attorney knowledgeable and experienced in wills, trusts, and estate matters, who can help you set up the legal framework for keeping control of your assets as well as control of the costs.

He welcomes the opportunity to meet with you and assist you in deciding whether a trust would be your best option, or if there are other alternatives that would more appropriately suit you and your estate. He can help you better understand durable powers of attorney and living wills in order to determine if they will be necessary for your estate planning.

The estate plan set up for you should address your objectives, your desires, your fears and concerns, and be as individual as you and your family are. Attorney Goan will see that your unique estate planning and asset protection needs are dealt with efficiently and effectively. He’ll also discuss with you available options in the event a divorce or other life-changing event should occur in the future.
