Estate Planning Attorney Muskegon, MIOur Norton Shores estate attorney can help you plan for every life stage. It’s never too early (or late) to start estate planning. While we understand it can be difficult thinking about a time when you won’t be able to express your final wishes, it’s important you talk with an elder law attorney as soon as possible to discuss your future.

Estate planning is about much more than writing a will. Our estate lawyer can also help you protect assets from nursing home spend-downs, as well as help you express your wishes for asset distribution and end-of-life care.

Estate planning allows you to:

  • Appoint a financial power of attorney
  • Appoint a medical power of attorney
  • Let family know your preferences for end-of-life care
  • Write a legal will that describes how you want assets to be distributed
  • Protect assets from nursing home spend-downs
  • Learn if you’re eligible for Medicaid

In the event you’re incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself, a financial or medical power of attorney can help you carry out your final wishes. A power of attorney is often a family member who you can trust to make financial and medical decisions on your behalf. Effective estate planning keeps you in control of your own affairs for as long as possible.

Our Norton Shores estate attorney is dedicated to helping you plan for retirement so you can enjoy peace of mind. To set up your consultation with estate attorney Douglas H. McPhail, call (231) 799-4994.
