Lepant Law Office

Fairbury, NE Estate Planning Attorneys

Theodore Roosevelt once said “It is not often that a man can make opportunities for himself. But he can put himself in such shape that when or if the opportunities come he is ready.” Similarly, we do not know what our future holds, but estate planning can help you be prepared for the road that lies ahead.

 

If you live in Fairbury, NE or the surrounding areas let us help you protect your assets, designate which beneficiaries receive your assets after your death, and help you with any other important safeguards needed for end-of-life care.

 

The goal of estate planning is to carry out your wishes regarding the disposition of your property after you die. It can be as simple as executing a Will or it might involve complicated issues, such as family farm preservation and tax planning. In either case, the importance of having Power of Attorney documents cannot be overstressed. Health care and finances often are important issues later in life, especially if you become incapacitated. Proper estate planning is not just about your property, it is also about your quality of life.
