People often believe that “ESTATE PLANNING” is only for the wealthy, but this could not be further from the truth. In fact, it is often more important for persons who are not so wealthy to have a plan. Your estate is simply the property you own when you pass away; and an estate plan ensures that this property is distributed according to your wishes once you are gone.
A typical estate plan consists of a will, durable power of attorney, medical power of attorney, health information release, declaration of guardian, and directive to physicians (aka a living will), and everyone over the age of 18 should have one. It is truly one of the best gifts you can give your family. Your estate plan provides a roadmap for honoring your wishes, and will save your family the financial and emotional expense of trying to navigate without one.
Who We Are
At first glance, you might see Weisinger Law Firm as just another San Antonio-area law firm that focuses on estate planning, probate and guardianship. But we are so much more than that. At Weisinger Law Firm, we take the time to get to know you, as well as your objectives and needs, so that we can develop a comprehensive plan that works specifically for you. Our goal is to make the estate planning process as easy and stress-free as possible. We also hope to create a lifelong relationship so that no matter what happens, your family will know where to turn and you know your family will be taken care of.
If you have a child or family member with special needs, specific planning is necessary to ensure that they are protected should something happen to you. Traditional gifting of money or property to a person with special needs can cause more harm than good. If you are thinking of leaving assets meant to benefit a person with special needs, contact us to make sure the items are left in a Special Needs Trust to benefit the person as you intend.
