Although no one wants to think of times when we will be unable to care for ourselves or when we will be gone, one of the most responsible actions people can take is to provide for property, children, and loved ones through the creation of a comprehensive estate plan. At the Edwardsville, Illinois, law office of Byron Carlson Petri & Kalb, LLC, we help people create estate plans that are right for them and their families.
Comprehensive estate planning is much more than just writing a will. It also creates a plan for your own health care in the event that you cannot care for yourself. It sets out what your assets are, who should receive them, and when they should be received. The estate plan may also address issues like who should have the responsibility to care for your children if you become incapacitated or die. We help clients in estate planning, including:
- Healthcare directives
- Powers of attorney
Estate planning can involve financial, tax, medical, and business succession planning. Because a complete estate plan can involve diverse areas of law, working with an experienced lawyer is the best way to ensure that your estate plan will truly match your intent. At Byron Carlson Petri & Kalb, LLC, we have in-depth knowledge and 80 years of cumulative experience in business law, business succession, and tax issues. Our attorneys, like David J. Gerber, Christopher W. Byron, and Meredith L. Head, work with clients directly to help them through the estate planning process.
