Legal questions can arise quite separately from estate planning. I ask my clients to “call me first” on any legal issue. If the problem is not something I handle directly an appropriate referral will be made. I work with many other professionals to help my clients.
Questions relating to Corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLC), or real estate title issues can arise unexpectedly, quite apart from creating an estate plan. In fact, forming a Corporation or Limited Liability Company can be part of a well thought out plan. Family business management and succession to the next generation presents both problems and opportunities. People in business with non-family members should be particularly interested in a buy-sell agreement with their partners.
Legal problems can be of many types, and often do not come in simple packages. Contracts, automobile accidents or other types of injury, and any number of other issues bear directly on how to plan for the future. Death and incapacity require payment of obligations, collection of money owed, or both. Real estate owned by a decedent or someone under a Guardianship must be protected or sold. If a death is the result of a motor vehicle accident, or a work- related incident, other legal questions can become part of the total picture. Many other issues relating to social security, disability payments, veterans benefits and medicaid are part of this picture.
