Our Personalized Estate Planning Services in Bloomington
Guttman Law, PLLC focuses solely on estate planning to offer you up-to-date and highly customized services for your short-term and long-term goals. At the core of what we do, our team helps you create your estate plan and update it as necessary. We recommend that every person of legal age plan for their future for peace of mind. One of the benefits of estate planning is that you can amend yours as you see fit due to changes in your life circumstances or personal preferences.
Most people associate estate planning with wills, although they are only one type of legal document you can create. A will is a cornerstone of estate planning and allows you to address various matters such as naming a guardian for your minor child, establishing a trust, choosing the distribution of your assets and property, and even appointing a representative to oversee your succession.
Trusts allow you to authorize a specific individual to manage and distribute your assets to specific beneficiaries. Different types of trust exist, and our lawyers can walk you through them to find which one(s) fits your needs. Trusts offer many benefits like privacy, avoidance of probate, flexibility, and tax efficiency.
If you currently support a child or a loved one with a mental or physical disability, we can help you set up a Supplemental Need or Special Need Trust. This helps you put financial resources and assets aside for this person without disqualifying them from receiving essential benefits under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medical Assistance (Medicaid) programs.
Our firm offers cabin planning to simplify the transfer of your family cabin to the person of your choice. By drafting legally binding documents, we can help you organize different aspects of property management like ongoing financial contributions, maintenance expenses, ground rules, transfer of ownership, and property use.
We can assist you with healthcare planning including Advanced Healthcare Directives and HIPAA authorizations.
Advanced Healthcare Directives can help you:
- Designate preferred medical providers and hospitals
- Grant permission for emergency or experimental surgery to save your life
- Provide instruction for ventilator use, resuscitation, and end-of-life care
Our lawyers can also help you draft medical and/or financial Power of Attorney documents. In those, you can name a specific person to make decisions on your behalf if you are incapacitated due to injuries or illness.
If you lost a loved one, their estate usually goes through the court-managed probate process. We can help you navigate the process regardless of whether the deceased has left clear estate planning documents or not. We understand how the laws governing inheritance and intestate succession work and we can empower you in completing probate.
