How Estate Planning Can Help You

Estate planning is important regardless of your financial status. The lawyers at John H. Tuthill & Associates can provide you with an estate plan that:

  • Protects your wealth and assets by minimizing potential taxes and fees. Your estate plan estate plan coordinates what would happen with your home, your investments, your business, your life insurance, your employee benefits—such as a 401(k) plan or Investment Retirement Account (IRA)—and other property in the event you became disabled, incompetent or die.
  • Protects your dignity by making sure your wishes regarding health care treatment (such as your preferences on the use of life-sustaining measures) are followed.
  • Protects your heirs by ensuring that your estate is distributed according to your wishes. In the event of your death, a good estate plan makes provision for your surviving spouse, children from prior relationships and notes who should care for your children and with what resources.

Without an estate plan, the legislature of Oregon (via statute) will determine how your estate is distributed. An estate plan is mandatory to maintain control over how your estate is managed upon your death.
