Estate Planning Is Not a Scary Proposition

The number one reason many people do not have estate plans is that they are frightened by the thought of discussing a future that includes their own mortality. They need not worry. Estate planning is anything but anxiety-producing. When handled by competent professionals like the estate planning attorneys of Surprenant & Beneski, P.C. of Massachusetts,  the process is designed to make clients feel comfortable and secure. Contact our office to see how.

What Estate Planning Is Designed to Accomplish

Estate planning is all about taking control of the parts of your life that can be reasonably foreseen and making wise choices about how to handle the parts that are unpredictable. Our estate planning attorneys are not only knowledgeable; we are also compassionate and down to earth. We will make you feel relaxed with the process of estate planning —  a process which goes well beyond dealing with wills and beneficiaries, and includes:

  • Setting a course for a pleasurable retirement 
  • Protecting your assets
  • Avoiding unnecessary taxation
  • Preparing to meet your children’s educational needs
  • Protecting loved ones with special needs
  • Keeping family members with addiction problems economically protected
  • Preparing for incapacity as a result of injury or illness
  • Making sure that you have a sound plan for business succession
  • Supporting any charity, educational institution, or research center close to your heart

Far from being frightening, creating a well-crafted estate plan is a way of taking charge of what matters most. Our experienced estate planning lawyers will assist you in building a foundation for the future that will keep you and your family stable even in the face of destabilizing circumstances.
