Protecting Your Legacy With Estate Planning
When you plan your estate, you are giving your loved ones a great gift. Even if you don’t have a lot of wealth to pass on to the next generation, when you have a will and other estate planning documents in place, you make a difficult transition much easier for them after you are gone.
Jane Harris-Perry, founding attorney of Perry Law Firm, LLC, understands the importance of proper estate planning. Her path to practicing law came by caring for her aging parents and handling their estate matters. She blends her personal and legal experience in estate and probate law with a prelaw degree in psychology. She is able to handle delicate family matters with diplomacy while seeking solutions that represent a loved one’s final wishes.
Our firm also helps clients resolve issues in divorce and family law, DUI defense and other legal areas. This multidisciplinary approach to practicing law helps us advise you when changes in life circumstances dictate a change to your estate plan.
Empowering Important Decisions With Legal Authority
Our firm helps people draft estate planning documents such as:
- Living trusts
- Powers of attorney
- Medical advance directives
When you are our client, we develop an estate plan that meets your needs and goals. Some of our plans are relatively simple, some are complex. The most important thing is for a plan to express the client’s wishes and give those wishes legal authority. With that in mind, we develop plans that will stand up to legal scrutiny years or even decades into the future.
Skilled In Guiding Families Through Probate
When a person passes away, their estate must pass through probate. This is a legal process that distributes the estate to the person’s heirs, under the guidance of a probate court.
We help many clients protect their assets and maximize their legacies with the use of trusts and other tools that allow much of their property to bypass probate. We also help executors and other clients with the many details of moving an estate through probate. This includes filing paperwork, meeting deadlines, preparing taxes and resolving disputes.
