What Is Estate Planning?
Estate Planning involves planning for the distribution of your assets upon your death and includes creating a will and/or living trust, reviewing the beneficiaries of your retirement and non-retirement accounts, and ensuring you have the appropriate Power of Attorney and Health Care Advance Directives in place.
A will and/or a living trust enables you to transfer your assets to your chosen beneficiaries. and you can outline how your assets will be managed and distributed, ensuring your wishes are upheld.
At Andalman & Flynn, our estate planning attorneys have extensive experience in establishing and managing family trusts. We work closely with our clients to understand their unique circumstances and help them create tailored wills and trust agreements that align with their goals and priorities.

Do I Need a Will or Trust?
The short answer is yes — everyone needs a will or trust, regardless of the complexity of their assets. Contrary to popular belief, estate planning is not just for the wealthy or elderly; it’s for anyone who wants to protect their loved ones from unnecessary complications and disputes.
Our Estate Planning attorneys will discuss the benefits of a living trust and a will with you and help you decide which documents you need to create the proper estate plan for you.
By having a legally sound estate will or trust in place, you can ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes, minimize tax penalties, and avoid probate costs.
Even if you believe your assets are straightforward, the absence of a proper estate plan can leave your loved ones burdened with the difficult task of sorting out your estate. Don’t let that happen. Take the proactive step of creating an estate will or trust to provide clarity and peace of mind for your family.
