Millsboro Estate Planning Lawyer
Estate Planning Services in Sussex County
Estate planning, elder law, and estate and trust administration are complex matters, often impacted by family dynamics, state, and federal law, and legal processes that can have long term effects on you and your loved ones. With more than 15 years of experience, our Millsboro estate planning attorney is committed to helping you create and maintain an estate plan that works for you, and protects your assets and your loved ones, through every stage of life.
We are committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive service in ensuring that you or your loved ones have a plan in place to deal with the cost of long term care. Furthermore, in the wake of a loved one’s disability or death, you can rely on us to provide thorough and caring legal representation as we navigate the complexities of probate (estate administration) and trust administration.
When you contact our firm, you will be afforded a complimentary introductory call so that we may understand your needs and determine how we can help. If you decide to move forward, we will schedule a one-on-one consultation appointment with the attorney. Prior to the appointment, we will request that you complete and submit a short Consultation Worksheet, providing us important information to ensure you get the most out of your consultation. Consultations with Delaware and Maryland clients are scheduled in our Millsboro, Delaware office, conveniently located less than 20 miles from the Delaware beaches and the eastern shore of Maryland.
We are also able to meet with clients virtually. At the consultation we meet with you personally in order to get a complete understanding of your matter and learn about your personal circumstances, and objectives. Every client is unique and in our initial meeting, we will get to know you and educate you on the best options to suit your needs. For estate planning clients, we often discuss legal tools and strategies to plan for an event of incapacity and minimize the financial burden of long term care, probate and death taxes.
Such tools may include various types of trusts and other legal instruments such as powers of attorney and healthcare directives. With a concentration in elder law, we help clients understand how they may qualify for public benefits by engaging in Medicaid planning and/or VA planning. We help families wanting to protect loved ones with a disability understand the importance of special needs planning. Our sole focus on the areas revolving around estate law gives us a concentrated fund of insight and understanding.
