Making The Estate Planning And Probate Process Work For You

Many people fail to prepare even a simple will to safeguard their assets and their families in the event they unexpectedly pass away. Effective estate plans begin by drafting a will, but my firm takes it a step further. At the Law Offices of Mathew Olkin, I personally help you explore estate planning options to ensure your family is cared for after your passing, considering tools such as:

  • Wills and trusts
  • Conservatorships
  • Advance health care directives
  • Powers of attorney

These four components each can be of potential benefit for those in Windham County and eastern Connecticut. To learn how an estate plan could be crafted to suit your needs, visit my office in Willimantic to discuss your particular needs with an experienced estate planning lawyer.

Exercising Your Right To Decide For Yourself

Probate courts routinely appoint conservators to manage the affairs of persons who are unable to do so for themselves. Most people are quite unaware that they have considerable ability to choose who their own conservator would be. The choice is an important one, as a conservator typically is given broad powers to make decisions on a conserved person's behalf. I help my clients ensure that their wishes will be given the weight they deserve if a conservator ever must be appointed.

Facilitating A Smooth Probate Process

When a family member passes, the last thing you should worry about is having to figure out how to negotiate the process of probating their will. I make sure all the necessary documents are filed with the Probate Court so that the process can go as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
