Protecting Your Legacy

When preparing for the future, estate planning is crucial beyond mere financial considerations. It involves making decisions about your assets and personal care for scenarios where you may be unable to do so yourself due to incapacitation or death. Peek Goldstone, LLC recognizes the importance of this process and is dedicated to guiding individuals and families through the complexities of estate planning.

Why is estate planning so vital? At its core, it serves as a protective shield for your hard-earned property. Without a clear plan, the distribution of assets may default to statutory provisions that don't account for your unique circumstances or personal preferences. This can lead to outcomes that don't align with your wishes and may trigger conflicts among surviving loved ones. Estate planning is, therefore, a proactive measure to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your desires, fostering peace of mind for you and your family.

Our Erie estate planning lawyers understand that every client's situation is unique. We carefully consider individual circumstances and preferences. Our approach involves providing tailored options that align with your specific needs and offering comprehensive support to navigate the legal intricacies of estate planning. When you choose us, you're not just getting legal assistance but gaining a partner committed to untangling complexities and providing clarity.

Take the first step in safeguarding your legacy. Contact our experienced Erie estate planning attorneys today at (720) 614-5250.

Considering Estate Planning Strategies

Estate planning is more than a legal process; it's a strategic approach to safeguarding your legacy and protecting your assets and personal decision-making. 

Below are various estate planning vehicles and processes:

  • Wills: A well-drafted will is a legal document outlining how your property and possessions should be distributed upon passing. Our team works closely with clients to craft wills reflecting their unique circumstances and preferences.
  • Trusts: Trusts provide flexibility, control, and privacy, allowing individuals to outline specific conditions for the disbursement of assets. Our estate planning lawyers are adept at tailoring trust strategies to meet the diverse needs of our clients.
  • Powers of Attorney: When individuals cannot voice their wishes due to incapacitation, powers of attorney become instrumental. These legal documents grant authority to a designated person to make healthcare and financial decisions on behalf of the individual.
  • Probate: Probate involves validating a will (if one has been established) and distributing assets according to an individual's wishes or state laws. This intricate process can be challenging, emphasizing the necessity of legal counsel.

We are ready to provide insightful legal counsel, tailored solutions, and unwavering support.

Benefits of Estate Planning

Estate planning helps protect your legacy and allows your assets to be distributed according to your wishes. 

Preparing for your future can be beneficial in several ways:

  • Minimizing tax implications for heirs: Estate planning isn't just about preserving assets; it's about reducing the financial burden on your heirs. Effective strategies can mitigate tax implications, allowing more of your legacy to reach the intended recipients rather than being absorbed by taxes.
  • Providing for a smoother transfer of assets: A well-crafted estate plan facilitates a seamless transfer of assets, minimizing complexities and making the distribution process more straightforward.
  • Establishing medical directives: Beyond financial considerations, estate planning encompasses healthcare directives, allowing an individual’s wishes regarding medical treatment and end-of-life decisions to be clearly articulated. These directives also offer comfort and guidance to loved ones during challenging times.

Working with an Attorney

Considering an estate planning strategy is a delicate process demanding attention to detail and strategic guidance. Peek Goldstone, LLC can be your dedicated partner in navigating this complex terrain.

Our approach begins with a personalized consultation with one of our estate planning lawyers in Erie. This initial meeting is crucial to understanding your circumstances, goals, and concerns. We will carefully assess your needs, providing insights into effective strategies to secure your legacy.

Once the foundation is laid during the consultation, the next step involves gathering pertinent financial and personal information. From assets and liabilities to personal preferences and family dynamics, we leave no stone unturned in crafting a comprehensive estate plan.

With a thorough understanding of your unique circumstances, we then draft and review legal documents. Wills, trusts, powers of attorney–each document is crafted with precision to align with your wishes and provide a legally sound foundation for the distribution of your assets.

    "So glad to have met them both"
    Brian Klein and Brie Garhart were just outstanding with my case. Throughout the process they listened to my concerns and worked hard to get the outcome that was more than satisfactory for me. They were with me all the way calming my fears and at the end celebrating the outcome. So glad to have met them both and to have had the opportunity for them to work on my case and I call them friends.

    "I highly recommend Brian Klein at Peek Goldstone"
    Having received poor advice from a different law office and attorney, I was feeling distressed due to the criminal charges made against me. Seeing an ad for Peek Goldstone in my local paper, I gave them a call. Right from the initial consultation I knew I had found the right person for the job! Brian Klein treated me with respect and was nothing short of brilliant in his ability to leave no stone unturned in order to represent me in the best possible light. Will you have to pay for his services? Yes. Will it be worth it? Yes! I highly recommend Brian Klein at Peek Goldstone for your criminal case.

      "Incredibly easy to understand and trust."
      I worked with Nicholas Ohmann on a consultation, and he did an excellent job looking at my situation from all angles, and provided a few possible courses of action. No BS, no pushing, and incredibly easy to understand and trust. Depending on how my case unfolds, he's the first one I'm calling if I need further representation. Highly recommend!

      "They understood my exact needs!"
      Monique did an amazing job representing me throughout my case. She understood exactly what I wanted/needed to resolve my case. She took the time to explain all possible outcomes, even the ones not favorable to me in order to prepare me for whatever might happen in court. Monique did a fantastic job and would highly recommend her for your legal needs. The entire office staff were friendly and helpful. They were very responsive when I contacted them referencing my case.
