The importance of hiring an attorney to help plan your estate

On Behalf of | May 8, 2015 | Estate Planning

Many people in Nevada are under the false impression that do-it-yourself estate planning kits cost less than working with an attorney. Not only can the prices of these kits be more expensive or comparable to an attorney’s fees, creating estate planning documents on self-help websites can end up costing your beneficiaries more down the line.

At Cassady Law Offices, we offer estate planning packages that include wills, powers of attorney and revocable living trusts at flat rates with no hidden fees. If you are in the process of planning your estate, we may be able to help you properly draft a comprehensive and personalized estate plan that won’t result in your beneficiaries having to pay unnecessary estate taxes.

People often run into problems with do-it-yourself estate planning kits because the programs do not provide advice that is tailored to each family’s specific needs. Whether you are a property owner, a business owner or you have children from a previous marriage, the unique structure of your estate and your family requires the attention of a qualified attorney. Our attorneys at Cassady Law Offices are ready to take the time to understand your unique situation and then develop an estate plan that will bring the most benefit to you and your beneficiaries.

Even the simplest will or trust can end up being contested when it is not executed properly. When you create an estate plan at Cassady Law Offices, you can be sure that our attorneys are preparing each document in accordance with Nevada law. For your convenience and peace of mind, we give you the option of storing your will in a fireproof safe that is located at our office.
