Personal Representative

If you are looking for a firm to handle your estate plan, I highly recommend Heidi Webb, Attorney at Law. She and her staff are thorough professionals. I was very impressed with the in-depth knowledge and explanations in layperson's terms. In the end I felt like I made good, informed decisions for me and for my family's future.

Through one of the most turbulent times of life, Heidi and her colleagues offered professional guidance and an empathetic heart. It cannot be stressed enough how grateful I am to have had someone of her character and calibur assisting me after my father's passing.

As the executor, both Heidi and her team made sure I had a holistic understanding of what was going on, keeping me consistently engaged. Despite my father not having a will, any complications or hurdles encountered in the process were quickly overcome by her excelling competence.

It is with the utmost sincerity that I would recommend Heidi's services to anyone.

estate planning tips

What Are Some Basic Estate Planning Tips?

If you have been reading my blog, you know I always recommend hiring an Estate Planning Attorney to help you put your documents in place and advise you based on your needs. The purpose of this post is to give advice that can apply if you have a plan or are putting together information to meet with an Estate Planning attorney. 

Take an inventory of your Assets. 

Clients often think Estate Planning is all about liquid assets, but also make sure you take stock of your physical belongings, sentimental items, and digital assets.

Review your beneficiaries regularly. 

With every life event, your beneficiaries can change. Typical events that will cause beneficiary changes or additions include births, deaths, marriage, and divorce. 

Review your Estate Plan Annually.

 In addition to updating your beneficiaries, many aspects of your Estate Plan will change and shift as life goes on —any annual review at tax time is a great habit. 

Discuss probate laws with your attorney. 

Probate laws are different in every state and county, and it’s essential to be aware. Probate is how a Will is vetted or “proved” in a court of law. Once the Will is proved, your executor can start taking actions as instructed in your Estate Plan.  

Keep your documents organized. 

Along with your Estate Plan will come many associated documents and statements meant to assist your executors in carrying out your wishes. You’ll want to keep your records in a safe, secure place, and you’ll want to keep them neatly organized. That way, your loved ones will be able to locate information quickly.
