Wills, Trusts & Estates
When someone dies, they deserve to have their property and acquisitions transferred to their close family members, friends, or whomever else they wished to entrust their assets to after death. Legal issues relate to wills, trusts, and estates can be tricky if the directions left by the deceased individual are not clear. At Shuttleworth, Ruloff, Swain, Haddad & Morecock, P.C., we hope to solve this problem before it happens by helping the living create comprehensive and official estate plans in order to ensure that everything they own and are responsible for will go to a proper new owner after their death.
The services that our knowledgeable lawyers at Shuttleworth, Ruloff, Swain, Haddad & Morecock, P.C. provide for our clients include the creation and review of a last will and testament, the creation of a power of attorney for you in the case that you are someday unable to make medical decisions for yourself, the creation of a trust to minimize estate taxes and provide increased elderly benefits, and the creation of an advance medical directive that determines how long you will be kept on artificial life support if you were ever in a vegetative state as well as who would be appointed to make medical decisions for you in that situation.
