Planning For Life's Transitions

As the proverb has it, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." In the field of estate planning and probate, the meaning of this old saying is clear. We will all face difficult transitions in the future, but if we prepare for them in advance, we will be in a much better position to deal with them than we would be if we only dealt with them after the fact.

I am attorney C. Mac Gibson, Jr., and I help clients prepare for the future by drafting documents such as:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care power of attorney
  • Health directives
  • Guardianships and conservatorships
  • Special-needs planning

I also help manage estates after a loved one has passed away by navigating heirs through the probate process, which includes the filing of Petition to open an Estate, preparing Inventory and Appraisement, and drafting a Deed of Distribution.

Build A Legacy

Everyone — not just the very rich or very old — should have some form of estate plan. Whether your plan is relatively simple or highly complex is up to you, your wishes and the needs of your loved ones.

A basic estate plan consists of a will, a power of attorney for financial affairs, and a health care directive. These documents make transitions easier for your loved ones by making important and difficult decisions for them in advance.

A more complex estate plan can involve a trust to preserve assets and build a legacy that will last many years into the future. You can also use trusts and other estate planning tools to provide for loved ones with special needs and for many other purposes.
