Wills

A will is a set of instructions for the distribution of an individual's assets upon their death.

The only way to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes is to have a will. At Katz Law Office, Ltd., we help you assess your estate and assets to determine the best way in which to draft your will.

Beneficiaries and/or heirs may argue over the distribution from a will of a deceased individual. In addition to handling the drafting of a will, our firm can handle the litigation surrounding will contests.

We also handle the drafting of a living will that details your wishes for medical care and/or financial care if you become incapacitated and unable to communicate your decisions and wishes. We can draft:

  • Power of Attorney for Health Care
  • Living Will Declaration
  • DNR (Do No Resuscitate) Advance Directive

Trusts

  • A trust is a legal instrument capable of holding property. Property in a trust is not subject to probate.

There are many different types of trusts that are designed to achieve a variety of different goals. By taking the time to assess your goals for the assets that will be funding the trust and your specific situation, we can effectively determine the best type of trust for you to establish. Options may include:

  • Special Needs Trusts
  • Living Trusts
  • Charitable Trusts
