If you are like most people, you've probably spent your entire life working hard to provide for your family. At the Wrentham, Massachusetts, law offices of Wood & Gresham, we can help you care for them after you are gone too.
Wood & Gresham: Helping Clients Protect Their Families For Years To Come
Many parents spend every day of their lives worrying about their children — whether they are learning enough in school, getting enough exercise, eating their vegetables — but what happens when parents are no longer there to care for their children?
At Wood & Gresham, P.C., we help parents with young children set up guardianships and trusts so their minor children will be cared for in the event of their incapacity or death.
From new parent to grandparent — everyone can benefit from a few simple estate planning tools.
Older individuals also benefit from estate planning. If you enter a Medicaid-funded nursing facility, the state will take all of your assets to cover the costs of your care.
Our attorneys believe you should be able to pass your hard-earned assets on to your family members at your death, not give them to the state of Massachusetts. That is why we work with middle-aged and elderly clients to set up trust funds that save tax dollars, preserve family legacies and pass property on to the next generation.
Franklin Probate Administration Lawyers
Along with protecting assets and caring for family members, estate planning tools such as wills, powers of attorney and health care proxies can reduce stress on grieving family members.
At Wood & Gresham, P.C., we help our clients develop health care proxies and livings wills explaining their end-of-life wishes. These documents help families make tough decisions about medical care and funeral arrangements. Financial powers of attorney are also used to reduce the stress on those caring for elderly family members.
Wills and trusts are also convenient ways to reduce time and money spent in probate. By naming select individuals to receive specific pieces of property, you can reduce family squabbling and keep your property out of the jurisdiction of the probate court.
