The Law Office of Brian Neil Burg is devoted to helping you plan for your future and that of your loved ones through the use of wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advance directives and other legal documents.
Many people do not realize that, under the law, they can have a great deal of control over what will happen to themselves and their possessions in the unfortunate circumstances of either incapacity or death—provided the relevant decisions are made before those circumstances intervene. Making decisions in advance and putting them into a legal document can assure one's wishes will be carried out.
The best time to make decisions about those matters is now, while you are mentally alert and able to plan for yourself, your loved ones, and other possible beneficiaries of your good will and thoughtfulness, such as your alma mater or favorite charities, or even a beloved pet. To avoid thinking about any type of estate planning until a possible prolonged illness, either physical or mental, or even the death of a loved one, is often waiting until it is too late.
At the Law Office of Brian Neil Burg, initial consultations are free.
