Estate Planning Overview

If you want to ensure your medical wishes are honored, your property is distributed according to your wishes, and your loved ones are cared for a properly drafted estate plan is essential.

We can help you find solutions to your goals through the following:

  • Wills
  • Trusts, including special needs trusts and living trusts
  • Powers of attorney and durable powers of attorney
  • Guardianships
  • Conservatorships
  • Health care directives

All of us pass away.  Too often people die unexpectedly and without a plan for how their family will manage financially.  The best way to ensure your family is protected is to do your Estate planning.  With a little thought, you can ensure that:

  • You and your families assets are protected
  • You have reduced or eliminated estate tax problems
  • Family conflicts regarding your estate are addressed by you rather than the courts
  • That only those you want to receive funds from your estate receive those funds
  • Your family knows what your wishes are regarding healthcare if you are unable to communicate your desires

Your estate plan should fit the unique qualities and goals of your life. The Law Office of Mark C. McClure will examine your specific concerns and goals to establish the best estate plan for your specific needs.

Fun fact: In 1926 a man from Toronto had a will that became famous for offering the bulk of his estate to the woman in his town who had the greatest number of children in the ten years after his death.   It is said that locals referred to the ten years from 1926 to 1936 as the “the Great Stork Derby.”.  Attempts to invalidate the will by his heirs were not successful, and the bulk of his fortune eventually went to four women.
