Limited Clients. Proven Results.

Everyone should have an estate plan. It’s the complexity of the estate plan that should vary to each individual situation. Estate Plan Creation Lawyer Robert Stiefvater formed Stiefvater Law, LLC in order to provide cost effective estate plans for select clients. Our estate plans typically cost only a fraction of the expenses that are saved by streamlining or avoiding the probate process. A small investment now can save big later on. By limiting the number of clients we represent, we are able to provide individual service that is practically unheard of in this day and age. Our Estate Planning Lawyers prepare only those documents that are necessary for our clients. We never sell services that aren’t recommended. We take our estate planning seriously – let’s talk.

Your estate plan should be personal to your wishes and needs. Estate Planning Attorney Robert Stiefvater believes in creating value for our clients in the creation of their estate plans. Online forms simply cannot replace the services of our Estate Planning Attorneys. The will and trust documents that are found online are simply fill in the blank forms. Many are insufficient for their stated purposes. For example, one wrong phrase can invalidate or change the entire interpretation of the document. At Stiefvater Law, LLC, we take the time to understand your concerns and wishes and draft each document specific to you, the client.

Estate Plan Creation Lawyer Robert Stiefvater offers his clients a basic estate planning package. These are documents that everyone should have. Many of Robert’s clients require the preparation of additional situation specific documents, but at the core of every estate plan created by his Estate Planning Law Firm is the basic estate plan package.

The basic estate plan package consists of:

1. Health Care Power of Attorney;

2. Last Will & Testament;

3. Durable Power of Attorney; and

4. Living Will

Speak with one of our Estate Planning Lawyers in about your estate planning needs and wishes.

Living Will:

Legal Document that provides instructions regarding end-of-life care if you are unable to make those decisions on your own. Ensures that your own choices and medical wishes are honored and how you should be cared for in end-of-life situations when you become incapable of communicating your wishes. Sets forth your wishes on topics such as resuscitation, desired quality of life and end of life treatments, including organ donation and treatment you do not want to receive. Without a living will, the laws of the State of Oho will determine who will make your health care decisions.

Do Not Resuscitate (DNR):

One of the most important parts of your Living Will includes indicating your wishes regarding resuscitation. Your Living Will expresses your wishes regarding resuscitation. This issue still needs to be addressed with your doctor and a state specific form needs to be completed and signed by the physician to start taking effect. This is especially important in a pre-hospital situation to prevent paramedics or your health care facility from trying to resuscitate you if your wish is not to be resuscitated.

Estate Planning Attorney Robert Stiefvater ensures that each client understands the process of creating an effective estate plan. Certain terminology is used in the estate planning process and we take the time to explain the documents, which includes explaining the terminology. Some of the common terms include:

Executor:

A person named in a Decedent’s Will to carry out the terms of the Will and handle the Probate Estate.

Administrator:

A person appointed to handle a Decedent’s probate estate that was not named in the Will.

Testator:

A person that signs a Will. Note: A Will is technically called a Last Will and Testament, and the term Testator is the person executing their testament.

Testate:

A person is considered to have died testate if the Decedent had a valid will signed before they died.

Intestate:

A person is considered to have died intestate if they died without having a valid will.

By limiting the number of clients we represent, Stiefvater Law is able to take the time to ensure that each client understands every step of the estate planning process.
