Planning For Your Family’s Future
Some people believe estate planning is an area of law for the wealthy, but trusts, wills, probate and powers of attorney are important to everyone. At Cray Law PLC, our guiding principle is helping clients of all ages and financial means to gain peace of mind by putting their affairs in order in the most efficient way possible.
We help clients throughout Southeastern Iowa and West-Central Illinois to control how their assets are distributed after death or in the event of incapacity. We can help you understand the state and federal laws that apply to estate planning, as well as guide you to make smart estate tax decisions.
Looking After Others and Yourself
In addition to helping clients create a plan to distribute their assets, our lawyers can set up a living will, also called an advance care directive, in case you are incapacitated. We offer many other estate planning services as well, including:
- Appointing a power of attorney
- Establishing trusts and revocable trusts
- Drafting premarital agreements
- Business planning transition and succession planning
- Drafting a living will
- Understanding tax law
- Substance abuse commitments
- Mental health commitments
Giving You and Your Loved Once Peace of Mind
While estate planning may give you peace of mind, it is also a gift to surviving family members. Children may not agree on a course of action after your death, causing further stress at a time when they are most vulnerable. You can also eliminate or lessen the tax burden on your loved ones by making arrangements ahead of time.
