ESTATE PLANNING

Estate Planning

No matter your age or your financial situation, a well drafted estate plan can save your family time, money, and frustration in the event you become incapacitated or upon your death. Additionally, an estate plan should be reviewed periodically or any time you or a family member has a life-changing event, such as a birth or adoption, separation or divorce, death, illness, disability, business start-up or wind-down, relocation to another state, or significant change in financial status – just to name a few. At Barringer Sasser, LLP, our attorneys spend time understanding your family and finances and will customize or update an estate plan to meet your current and long-term objectives.
