Providing Peace Of Mind Through Estate Planning

Estate planning is a very personal process. It involves everything from finances, to medical issues, religious beliefs and family dynamics.

At Justin Raber Attorney at Law, in St. Marys, West Virginia, we understand it can feel overwhelming and uncomfortable discussing these issues. However, having an estate plan in place is an invaluable way to protect yourself, your assets and your family.

Developing An Estate Plan That Meets Your Needs

Your family and your life are unique; your estate plan should reflect that. When you come to Justin Raber Attorney at Law, our lawyers take the time to get to know you. Once we understand your needs and your goals, we work together to create an estate plan that achieves your goals, while taking into consideration your family's unique dynamics.

We use a variety of estate planning tools, including:

  • Wills allow you to designate who will receive certain pieces of property after you pass away.
  • Trusts are entities that hold assets, like real estate, businesses, cash, or other interests, for beneficiaries.
  • Financial powers of attorney let you designate someone to manage your finances for you in the event you are no longer able to do so.
  • Medical powers of attorney allow you to name a trusted person to make medical decisions on your behalf if you are not able to make them on your own.

Asset preservation is a big concern for many of our clients. After years of working hard and saving, most people hope to leave an inheritance for their children. Unfortunately, long-term care is expensive and even large savings can get eaten up by medical costs. Placing items in trusts and gift deeding property to the next generation can help ensure you leave a legacy for your children.
