Estate Planning Lawyer in Rockville, MD

As a seasoned estate planning firm, the Law Offices of David P. Korteling knows that contemplating about death and what happens after can be an uncomfortable subject for many individuals. It is no wonder then that almost half of the country’s population do not have an estate plan or even a will in place. Additionally estate planning is often assumed to benefit only those with significant assets, however, this is not always the case.

An estate plan can be helpful to all, especially to individuals who:

  • Have children and other dependents such as a sibling with special needs
  • Have a large estate
  • Have any type of retirement account including a 401(k), 403(b), etc.
  • Wish to give some of their money to charities
  • Own a business regardless of what size
  • Value privacy

If you identify with the above list, our Rockville MD estate planning lawyer can help you get started. We offer a variety of legal approaches in estate planning and are experienced in creating a sensible and effective estate plan that is customized to best fit your unique situation and goals. Our firm can guide you through every step of the way, helping you be more comfortable and confident with the decisions you are making for your future and your family’s as well.

Call us today at (301) 281-4808 to schedule a consultation.

Importance of Having an Estate Plan

There is no perfect time to have a sensible and effective estate plan than now. From tomorrow to the coming days, weeks, months, and years, there is no telling what could happen. However, a 70-year-old individual’s estate plan may not be useful for someone who’s just in their mid-30s. An estate plan should be personalized and unique depending on your current situation and wishes.

At the Law Offices of David P. Korteling, we strive to get to know clients like you personally in order to create an estate plan that is most beneficial to you. We want you and your family to have the peace of mind knowing that you would be able to reap the rewards of your hard work when the time comes.

There are many benefits of having an estate plan including:

  • Reducing or even eliminating estate taxes
  • Avoiding costly probate court proceedings
  • Avoiding tension within the family
  • Protecting the rightful beneficiaries
  • Protecting assets from unforeseen creditors
  • Having an arrangement in place in case of mental incapacitation or untimely death
