Nearly everyone, regardless of age, has an estate. Some are quiet modest while others are large and complex. Your individual estate is comprised of property you own; your home, personal possessions, bank accounts, investment accounts, cars, boats, and other real estate assets. An estate plan protects your assets while you are alive and distributes your assets, according to your instructions, when you die.
There are four basic documents that are essential components of your estate plan:
1. A Will
2. Power of Attorney
3. Health Care Surrogate
4. Living Will.
A fifth optional component is a Trust or Living Revocable Trust. A Trust can provide asset protection, it can reduce individual tax liability, and it will avoid Probate. At Boss, Arrighi, & Hoag, we examine each client's individual needs so we can custom design their estate plan.
Most Americans put off estate planning because they mistakenly think they don't have a need for a plan, estate planning is too complicated, or they don't want to face their own mortality. Dying without a Will, called intestate, causes undue stress on your family. The loss of a loved one is difficult enough don't make their suffering worse because you didn't have an estate plan.

Brian D. Arrighi is co-owner and the managing attorney for the Tampa location. Brian works very closely with his clients to develop a strategy that is geared towards his client's requested resolution. Brian stated, II always want the best for my clients and I will aggressively seek that result. However, the best result is one in which my client helps create. If you have an opposing party or spouse that is unreasonable and not willing to work towards a just, equitable, and amicable result, then trial is necessary. Prior to reaching that point, you want to be able to say that you have done all that you can to avoid having a Judge, who knows absolutely nothing about you or your case, make such critical decisions for you. Thus, prior to any litigation, Brian makes sure all avenues of settlement have been pursued and exhausted.
