Estate Planning
Preserving your family's wealth for future generations
Whether you're planning the parameters of your future medical care or establishing support for loved ones upon your death, Daniel Bendt helps with all aspects of estate planning issues, including:
-Estate planning
-Estate tax issues
-Choosing the appropriate executor
-Guardianships
-Living wills

-Wills drafting

Securing your legacy:
You work hard for your family, so knowing that you have planned for their long-term well-being and financial security can bring you comfort. We thoroughly analyze your estate and strategize the best means of transferring your assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for your children, caring for your pets, supporting personal philanthropic causes and protecting your loved ones.

Draft your living will and last will and testament:
A will is essential at every stage of your life. Your living will sets the parameters for medical intervention should you become incapacitated. This assures that when you are most vulnerable, your wishes will be honored.

Your last will provides the opportunity to distribute your property, establish care for your children and otherwise express your wishes upon your death. A will is necessary if you intend to leave property to a person or entity other than a blood relative, such as a domestic partner, a friend or a charity. If you die without a will, the court determines how your property is distributed, who cares for your children and even what happens to your pet - making decisions that might not reflect your desires. Daniel Bendt can draft valid wills that ensure your intentions are honored.

Changing your will:
As your life changes, so might your estate plan. You may need to update your will throughout your life. Daniel Bendt drafts valid codicils that address changes in your financial situation, marital status, number of children, philanthropic interests and general lifestyle decisions.

Appointment of guardianship:
If you have minor children, your will allows you to make decisions about their future care. This is especially crucial if you are a single parent or if both parents die in a common incident. If you do not name a guardian, the court will appoint a guardian for your children and can make decisions adverse to your ultimate parenting goals. You can also make arrangements for your pets' care in your will, including naming a guardian to take responsibility for your pets.
