Estate Planning

Worcester Estate Planning Attorney

Everyone should have an up-to-date estate plan. A well-made estate plan allows you to make arrangements for your own future, take care of your loved ones, and remember special friends and favorite charities.

At Eden Rafferty, our estate planning attorneys can help you tailor an estate plan to meet your specific needs while ensuring that the assets you have worked so hard to accumulate are preserved and distributed according to your wishes.

To arrange to speak to an estate planning attorney, please contact our office to schedule a free initial consultation.

First we will consider your own health care needs by drafting a health care proxy. Also called a living will, this document will allows you to make your wishes for your own health care known, should you become unable to state them yourself. In addition, we will ask you to choose someone you trust to make decisions about your care should you be unable to do so yourself. We will draft a health care power of attorney to give the person you name the legal right to make these decisions on your behalf.

After carefully listening to your concerns, we will use a variety of estate planning tools to help you achieve your goals while avoiding estate taxes to the extent possible. Whether you need to plan for the on-going care and support of a child with disabilities or the future of your business partnership, we can help. Using wills, trusts, living trusts, special needs trusts, and a variety of other tools, our estate planning attorneys will build an estate plan to achieve your objectives.

Eden Rafferty also provides efficient legal services to transfer assets after someone has died. Our probate lawyer will reconcile debts and resolve any claims against the estate, and distribute assets to heirs and other beneficiaries.
