Estate Attorney Seattle
Trusts and estates law is the body of law that governs the management and administration of an individual’s personal assets and property both during the individual’s lifetime and after the individual’s death. Through wills, trusts, and other effective estate planning tools, an individual can not only plan for the distribution of assets and property during life and after death, but also plan for other contingencies that may arise, such as who will manage the individual’s property and affairs in the event that the individual becomes incapacitated, or who will make certain predetermined healthcare decisions on behalf of the individual in the event that the individual becomes unable to do so for him or herself. As one can imagine, having an effective estate plan is extremely important and not only benefits the individual, but also benefits the individual’s family and friends.
