Estate planning, Probate, business formations

Williamson Law Office, PA

I’m attorney Melvin Williamson, and I provide the information and explanation you need when drawing up your estate plan. I’m a certified estate planning and probate specialist who’s worked for over 30 years in estate planning matters. Talk to me. I can clearly explain your options.

The Williamson Law Office offers a range of other estate planning tools and representation that are designed to meet your estate planning and administration needs. These can include helping you create, designate, or handle the following:

  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills
  • Advance health care directives
  • Tax planning
  • Probate and estate administration

By creating a will, you explicitly state your wishes for the distribution of your assets, along with how your estate administration should be handled. Wills allow you to specify people or organizations you want to receive a distribution from your estate. It can be useful to indicate which of your children receive particular items of your personal property, such as heirloom jewelry, furniture, and china.

You may also indicate any charities or other organizations that you’d like to provide for. I’ve drafted numerous wills for clients during my years in practice and I’ll use that experience to create effective estate planning solutions for your circumstances. I’ll review your situation and advise how best to structure a will for your needs and goals.

Wills and trusts provide the means to ensure an orderly transfer of wealth from one generation to the next. Additional instruments, such as advance health care directives (living wills) allow you to make decisions for your medical care for times when you may be otherwise incapacitated. An experienced estate planning attorney can make sure that your wishes are honored and your family is taken care of in the manner you intended.


Other Estate Planning Tools

A variety of trusts are available in planning your estate. I handle the creation, maintenance, funding, and administration of trusts such as revocable living trusts, charitable remainder trusts, life insurance trusts, special needs trusts, and marital trusts. Trusts are valuable because they are flexible planning instruments and can be tailored to nearly infinite variations. As a CPA and estate planning attorney, I can describe both the financial and legal advantages of using trusts as part of a comprehensive estate plan.
