Limited Clients. Proven Results.

There are certain documents that everyone should have prepared. There are additional documents that should be prepared depending on your individual situation. Our Estate Plan Creation Attorneys in will take the time to understand your goals and wishes for your estate – no matter how big or small – and prepare only the documents that are needed to achieve those goals and wishes. 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. We limit the number of clients we serve in order to provide individualized estate planning services that exceed our clients’ expectations. Let’s talk.

Your estate plan should be personal to your wishes and needs. Estate Planning Lawyer 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 Plan Creation 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 Planning 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.

Our Estate Planning Law Firm takes the time to explain the estate planning process, which requires that our clients understand the terminology being used. Some of this estate planning specific terminology includes the following:

Devisee:

A term used to identify someone that is entitle to receive real property pursuant to a Decedent’s Will.

Bequest:

A gift made to someone through a Decedent’s Will.

Power of Appointment:

A power granted to someone in a Decedent’s Will which allows that person the ability to appoint their allocated inheritance to someone else. This power can be limited to certain people, or can be general and applicable to anyone.

Guardians:

If a Decedent had minor children and they children had no living parents after the Decedent’s death, the Guardian is the person that takes custody and discretion over the minor child.

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.
