An estate planning lawyer is a legal professional who specializes in assisting clients with the creation and management of their estate plans. They provide expert advice on how to protect and distribute assets, minimize taxes, and ensure that the client's wishes are carried out upon their incapacity or death. Estate planning lawyers draft important documents such as wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and advance healthcare directives. They also provide guidance on strategies for charitable giving and asset protection. By working closely with clients, estate planning lawyers help them create comprehensive plans that provide peace of mind and preserve their legacies.
