Estate Planning Services

Our estate planning legal services in Frederick include:

  • Wills: The Last Will and Testament determines the way you want your assets to be distributed among your family, friends, and cherished causes after you pass away. You can also assign a guardian for minor children.
  • Trusts: Having assets in trust offers numerous benefits, including ease of transfer and beneficial tax implications. Our lawyers can help you determine the right type of trust for you, depending on your situation.
  • Powers of Attorney: A Financial Power of Attorney names an individual to become your Attorney-in-Fact, who then has the authority to make decisions on your behalf.
  • Advance Directives:Advance Directives, Living Wills, and Healthcare Powers of Attorney name individuals to serve as your Healthcare Agent to make healthcare decisions for you if you are unable to do so.
  • Probate Administration: After an individual’s death, a Personal Representative is responsible for administering the distribution of the individual’s estate in accordance with their Will or the law.  Our lawyers can assist with the complexities of this process to take the pressure off of the Personal Representative during a difficult time.  
  • Beneficiary Representation: Our lawyers help beneficiaries understand the process and their options to contest a Will, address any trust mismanagement, or challenge the wrongful distribution of assets.  
  • Probate Litigation and Contested Estates: An individual’s Will could be contested for multiple reasons, or it might be necessary to conduct probate litigation if interested parties or beneficiaries believe that the Personal Representative didn’t perform their duties properly.  Our lawyers can help provide excellent advice in these instances.
