Estate Planning

At The Finkelstein Group, P.C., our attorneys have over 75 years combined experience assisting clients in Washington D.C., Maryland and Georgia, in handling wills, trusts, probate, and estate administration.

People often say that their biggest fear is leaving their families with worries and expenses after their death. Our objective is to assist our clients with the estate planning process by providing documents and legal instruments for an easy transition to their heirs.

Our law firm fully understands the estate handling process and assists clients in developing estate plans that will stay current as their life situations change. Our attorneys will advise clients about the best way to proceed to protect their assets, avoid probate, or care for their loved ones in the event of their death.

We represent clients and their families from all income levels in the following estate planning matters:

  • Wills and Trusts - If leave your estate to your loved ones using a will, everything you own will pass through probate. The process is expensive, time-consuming and open to the public. With a trust and proper planning, your assets can pass on to your loved ones without undergoing probate, in a manner that is inexpensive and private. Our lawyers will review your current financial situation and determine which assets would be subject to probate upon your death. We can assist you with writing up a will and if necessary transfer ownership of your assets to a living or a special needs trust.
  • Probate and Estate Administration- A personal representative of an estate needs appropriate legal representation to help protect the wishes of the deceased, the value of the estate and the rights of the beneficiaries. Our attorneys will help you with all aspects of estate administration, including the collection of assets, the handling of debt payments, tax filings, and the distribution of property to heirs and beneficiaries.

While nobody wants to think about death, establishing an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. A well-crafted estate plan should provide for your family in an effective manner. The attorneys at The Finkelstein Group, P.C. will provide you with the best legal information possible regarding your estate planning needs.
