The importance of estate planning

Everyone has an estate, and no matter how much you make your bank account, home, car, and personal belongings all are part of it. When you pass or are severely disabled, if you don’t have a plan in place you force your estate and all your assets could be controlled by a court appointee, who will control how much or little each member of your family gets according to state law. You don’t have to let this happen! The estate planning experts at Pelkey & Pelkey, P.C. have years of experience in protecting individual’s estates through wills and trusts, and they can help you!

Recent changes in the taxation laws have substantially reduced the expenses families incur when settling a loved one's estate. The law firm of Pelkey & Pelkey, P.C. is committed to working with the family before or after the death of a loved one to arrive at the most cost-effective solution for handling a loved one's estate, including the use of Powers of Attorney and Trusts to mitigate the likelihood of potential costly litigation.
