Their comprehensive estate planning services are designed to provide you with a plan that is tailored to your assets, your loved ones and your wishes.
Building Personalized Estate Plans
When you come in to meet with the experienced attorneys at the Costello Law Group for a free initial consultation, they take the time to learn about not only your assets and liabilities, but your goals. Then, they will provide straightforward legal advice regarding the most efficient, cost-effective way to achieve the result you are looking for.
For many individuals, a basic estate plan will include:
- Powers of attorney: Designating an individual who will be able to make financial and legal decisions on your behalf when you are unable to make them yourself
- Advance directives: Designating an individual who will be able to make medical decisions on your behalf when you are unable to make them yourself
- Wills: Providing instructions for the transfer of your property after death and appointing individuals to handle your affairs
In addition to these basic components, estate plans may include a variety of different trusts which serve unique purposes. Thomas Costello, founder of the Costello Law Group, has both a Legal Master's degree (LLM) in taxation and a certification in estate planning, which allows him to walk clients through all of their options while considering the tax consequences of different plans.
Administration And Litigation Of Estates
In addition to their comprehensive estate planning practice, the Costello Law Group walks clients through estate and probate administration and advocates on their behalf when conflicts in the estate administration process lead to disputes or litigation. Their attorneys provide attentive, compassionate service to clients at a time when many are grieving the loss of a loved one.
The Costello Law Group also represents clients in guardianship proceedings, helping them gain the ability to make decisions on behalf of loved ones who can no longer care for themselves. These difficult times require expedient action and the assistance of a seasoned attorney who can minimize roadblocks and make the process as easy as possible.
