With over 20 years of experience, David Parker can help clients prepare the necessary documents to control the management and distribution of their assets, appoint trusted individuals to make important financial and medical decisions, and avoid the probate process.
Creating a last will and testament is a crucial aspect of estate planning. Without a will, assets will be distributed according to predetermined rules by the court system, which may not reflect the individual's wishes. However, a will alone cannot prevent the estate from entering probate court. To avoid this, David Parker can help clients establish trusts for asset management, such as revocable and irrevocable trusts. A revocable living trust ensures that beneficiaries receive their inheritances automatically and privately, without going through court.
In addition to wills and trusts, the Parker Law Firm can help clients create powers of attorney to designate specific individuals to make financial decisions on their behalf if they become unable to do so themselves. The firm can also assist clients in preparing healthcare proxies to ensure their medical care aligns with their preferences if they become incapacitated.
