Estate Planning

By creating your own revocable trust, Mr. Lafranchi can help your loved ones avoid the time-consuming, extremely expensive, court-supervised, and public process of probate when you die, or a court-supervised conservatorship if you become incapacitated. A revocable trust is a mechanism to take control of your assets and to follow your wishes when you die or become incapacitated. Most people need a trust in order to avoid probate. Scott helps his clients make sure that their trusts are funded by properly titling assets etc.

Mr. Lafranchi helps parents designate a guardian for their children by setting up their estate plan, thereby preventing wrenching court battles over the children if they lose their parents.

He also creates powers of attorney and health care directives so his clients’ affairs are handled according to their wishes should they become incapacitated.

Every estate plan is customized to fit the unique needs of each client.  Scott helps his clients put instruments in place to leave their assets to the people or charities important to them, and in a manner suitable to them, rather than leaving property outright to immature heirs or distant relatives.

These issues are very important, which every adult should deal with as soon as possible.
