Worcester Estate Planning Lawyers

Our lawyers protect your assets and provide peace of mind for your family and your future

Most people who have worked hard their entire lives would at least like to pass something on to the people and causes they care about. Making sure this happens requires careful planning and wealth management on your part. An estate planning lawyer from Gould & Ettenberg, P.C. can help you accomplish your goals through a variety of legal tools. We craft plans that fit the diverse income levels, family situations and estate planning goals of our clients in Worcester.

Why you need an estate planning attorney

While do-it-yourself wills and other estate planning documents abound, these are so generically worded that they cannot possibly address the unique aspects of your life. Such documents often create confusion and strife during estate administration, and they rarely take into account more advanced estate planning goals such as minimizing tax consequences, avoiding probate, planning for minor or disabled beneficiaries and protecting assets from elder-care expenses. Effectively accomplishing these goals requires the knowledge and experience of a Worcester estate planning lawyer.

How we can help

To serve our clients’ diverse needs, our estate planning attorneys provide a full range of planning and wealth management services, including:

  • Wills — For simple estate plans, a well-drafted will by itself may be sufficient to accomplish your goals. But even for more complex plans, wills are an indispensable component. Our attorneys draft will documents that clearly and accurately convey your final wishes and avoid confusion and discord among your family members.
  • Trusts — Our experienced lawyers can recommend and draft a variety of trusts, including testamentary and inter vivos trusts, to accomplish your estate planning, wealth management and asset protection goals.
  • Probate — Following the death of a loved one, we can help personal representatives understand their duties and obligations and provide the advice and assistance they need to smoothly navigate the probate process.
  • Estate administration — When a family member dies without an estate plan, handling their final affairs can be a difficult process. Our attorneys can assist in the process of estate administration under Massachusetts intestacy laws.
