UPON DEATH OR DISABILITY DO NOT LET THE STATE DICTATE THE MANAGEMENT AND DISTRIBUTION OF YOUR MONEY AND PROPERTY OR ORDER END OF LIFE MEDICAL CARE WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT. PROBATE COURTS IN RHODE ISLAND ASSESS A FEE UPON YOUR ASSETS AT DEATH, PLUS LEGAL AND OTHER MISCELLANEOUS COSTS. AVOID THESE FEES WITH AN APPROPRIATE ESTATE PLAN, OR ENSURE THAT YOU FAMILY MEMBERS WILL NOT BE LEFT WITH DECISIONS THAT YOU WOULD NOT WANT THEM TO MAKE.

Most of us do not want to think about our death, severe disability, or the possibility of being in an unresponsive medical condition or vegetative state so we avoid making a plan. Also, some of us do not plan for these events because we think that we do not have enough money or wealth to bother. This is terribly unfortunate. Without having legal documents to prepare for your death, terminal illness or severe disability you leave your loved ones vulnerable not only to the loss of money, personal effects of sentimental value, real property, and other material goods, but also life or death medical decisions that you could have made. Avoid leaving those you care about the responsibility and heartache of making these painful and difficult decisions without your help.

For most people the expense is minimal and the benefit to your family, loved ones, and friends is immense. Give them the peace of mind they deserve call me today and arrange for a free consultation.
