Comprehensive Wills & Trusts from an Experienced New Bedford Estate Planning Attorney
Brian M. Glover drafts wills and trusts and provides other quality estate planning in Massachusetts to help clients make sure their property and investments are protected and that they and their families are properly looked after in the event of death or physical or mental incapacity.
Secure Your Legacy Through Wills and Trusts
Brian M. Glover advises and assists clients in drafting their last will and testament, allowing them to decide how to distribute property to their heirs and make charitable gifts, according to their wishes. The will and estate planning process can also be used to make funeral arrangements in advance, ensuring that your wishes are met while easing the burden on your loved ones who otherwise will have to make difficult decisions at a trying time. The will is also an effective tool for appointing a guardian for any minor children, placing them in the care of people you know and trust instead of allowing the probate court to impose a guardianship on your children.
In addition to drafting wills, Brian M. Glover also helps clients manage and control their assets while reducing probate by creating and administering trusts, including revocable living trusts, irrevocable trusts, and supplemental needs trusts. An experienced Massachusetts estate planning attorney can help you learn how placing property into trusts can benefit you and your beneficiaries during your lifetime and after you are gone.
Planning for Incapacity
Deciding how your assets will be distributed is only one important aspect of estate planning. Equally important is considering how decisions will be made regarding your finances, health care and other matters in the event you become incapacitated and are unable to make these decisions for yourself or communicate them to others. Without proper planning, the court will impose a conservatorship on your finances or medical affairs, and a stranger could wind up making your most personal decisions. If instructions are unclear, different family members can wind up in court or damaging their relationships while fighting over what they believe your wishes truly are. Brian M. Glover can help avoid these conflicts by drafting the proper documents under your direction, such as:
- Durable Power of Attorney
- Health Care Proxy
- Advance Directive (Living Will)
