It is estimated that only 15% of families in the U.S. have done any type of estate or financial planning. Reaching your goals both during your life and after your death requires a little pre-planning. Of those that do have a will or trust, many have plans that are obsolete, outdated or non-compliant with the law. Many of these documents came from do it yourself type websites and are not state specific or legally valid. Sometimes they omit important contingencies you may not have thought of.

I help Clark County and Nye County, Nevada citizens fight accusations of DUI, including:

Every person starts their case with a presumption of innocence.  It is the states duty to allege and prove the charges against you.  A DUI charge may seem so straight forward you feel there’s no way to win.  That’s when you need to seek the advice of an experienced professional.  There are many constitutional and statutory safeguards to protect the rights of citizens like you and me.  The police certainly won’t give you the best advice and maybe not even a public defense attorney (PD).  It’s not that the PD’s office is incompetent, it’s simply that their caseload is simply too large to give your case the attention it deserves.  Conviction and  drivers license revocation are not inevitable.

A Will, unlike the estate planning documents previously discussed, takes effect only upon the death of the person who makes the Will. Moreover, a Will only governs the disposition of the assets of a person that are subject to probate administration. For example, if a parent named his or her daughter as the beneficiary of a life insurance policy, and the daughter was living upon her parent’s death, the life insurance proceeds would be paid directly to the daughter and not pass through probate administration. Therefore, the Will would not control the disposition of the life insurance proceeds. Read More About Wills

Individuals who own life insurance policies should examine various methods to remove the death benefits payable under their life insurance policies from their taxable estate for estate tax purposes. One attractive solution is the utilization of an irrevocable trust to own the life insurance policy and provide management of the proceeds from the life insurance policy for the benefit of the surviving spouse and other heirs. When utilizing a single life insurance policy that is intended to benefit your surviving spouse, the irrevocable trust can operate in a manner similar to the credit shelter trust whereby the surviving spouse enjoys the economic benefit of the life insurance proceeds while sheltering them from estate taxes upon the subsequent death of the surviving spouse. There is no limitation on the amount of life insurance proceeds that you can prevent from being subjected to estate taxes. Read More About Trust
