It is a common misconception that estate planning is only something to worry about after starting a family or accumulating substantial assets. In reality, is important for just about every person to create a will and establish a power of attorney; otherwise, the court system and your state’s laws, as opposed to your own words, will determine how your estate is distributed.
Even though “you can’t take it with you when you’re gone,” we strive to help our clients attain some peace of mind in knowing that their estates will be distributed to their loved ones according to their specifications. Although the topic of death can, at times, be difficult to discuss, the Rhode Island and Massachusetts estate planning attorneys at O’Leary Law Associates offer professional and courteous advice to ensure that our clients’ last wishes for their estates are carried out. We assist our clients in the creation and implementation of wills, trusts, powers of attorney and other documents related to our clients’ estates.
