There are many reasons people put off creating a will and testament or planning out their estate for when they shuffle off their mortal coil. The process is long and arduous, it’s uncomfortable to confront the inevitability of death, they think they’ll have plenty of time later…the rationalizations are endless.
While we recognize that confronting the idea that you may die at any time for any reason is uncomfortable, that is the unfortunate reality of the world we live in. If you do expire without proper planning, there are few more reliable results than the ensuing legal battle over the distribution of your assets, tearing apart your family at the seams.
Alexander on his deathbed once said when asked of his succession plan, “let the strongest take it.” While this may have worked out when distributing a vast empire to a nest of viper lieutenants, many of us would prefer our families to stay intact after we depart. The best way to ensure that is to begin your estate planning now while you still have time.
Now that we’ve covered the ‘why’ of estate planning, let’s get into the ‘how’. Unless you are a lawyer, it is heavily recommended that you enlist the services of a law firm that specializes in estate planning and trust creation. Just specializing isn’t enough, however – firms that provide top-quality services and will supply you with an airtight plan are necessary if you want to avoid any legal battles following your passing.

My wife and I recently completed our separate property trusts with Burris Law. Not only was Ariana completely knowledgeable and communicative, she made us both very comfortable in deciding how to formulate our trusts in a way that left each other and our heir protected. We are both 100% satisfied with our decision to go with Burris Law.
Sydney is extremely professional. I had a concerning legal matter and she was patient, kind and extremely courteous. She was upfront and honest and I now know the next steps I need to take for my legal matter. Burris Law will be the first law firm I call when I need to do so. Highly recommended!Natalie Rose
