Putting Your Final Wishes In Writing

A common estate planning misconception is that it is reserved for people who are wealthy or own expensive property and real estate. However, individuals in almost any stage of life can benefit from a basic estate plan, including a will, regardless of their net worth.

The knowledgeable attorneys at the Costello Law Group, based in Towson, Maryland, will work closely with you to learn about your situation and what you hope to accomplish with an estate plan. The firm offers straightforward, practical advice. Often, this involves drafting and executing a comprehensive will.

During a free initial consultation, one of the lawyers at the Costello Law Group will take the time to get to know you so that they can offer honest advice about how a will may benefit you, if a previous will needs to be updated, or whether there are other options.

Protecting Your Right To Distribute Your Property

A will plays an important role in your estate plan, it contains instructions for how your assets should be distributed after your death. Without a will, the property is distributed according to state law and without regard to your intentions or your relationships with the people who matter most to you.

By using a will, you can help ensure the following:

  • That special items are given to loved ones who will cherish them
  • That family heirlooms are passed down according to tradition
  • That charities or other organizations you care about will be supported
  • That loved ones will be adequately supported
  • That your minor children will be cared for by the guardian of your choice

A contested will can cause your children, grandchildren or other heirs to waste assets and strain relationships fighting over what you would have wanted, and may result in your final wishes not being honored. The Costello Law Group's diligent attorneys understand the nuanced laws surrounding the execution of wills, and will help ensure your will is thorough, detailed and properly executed so that it is valid and enforceable after you are gone.
