Focus on basic estate planning considerations


Today’s Michalk, Beatty & Alcozer blog post answers some basic questions that many individuals and families in Texas and across the United States often have when their thoughts turn to planning surrounding their loved ones.

Indeed, the term “estate planning” is almost a taboo utterance for legions of persons. A considerable number of people feel almost overwhelmed when they contemplate the planning universe.

Candidly, it can seem a bit complex. Moreover, the inclination to get started can be dulled for individuals who find themselves zeroing in on admittedly serious matters. Estate planning spans end-of-life concerns, family beneficiary/inheritance selections, power-of-attorney designations, guardian appointments and more.

Conceding some potential challenge, though, is only half the tale when it comes to estate planning. Would-be planners should also know that empathetic attorneys with proven experience in the area routinely help valued and diverse clients craft meaningful strategies and optimal outcomes across the full spectrum of planning concerns.

That is what the collectively deep legal team at Michalk, Beatty & Alcozer does.
