Planning For Your Estate And Future
As your family grows and changes, your estate planning needs change, too. At The Law Office of Michael F. Cuddy, we help individuals and families create estate plans that reflect their unique needs.
From our office in Dedham, for more than 30 years, we have provided high-quality, efficient representation to clients throughout Massachusetts. We are committed to educating our clients about the estate planning options that are available and helping them make informed decisions.
Estate Planning For Every Phase Of Life
Whether you are just starting a family or are nearing retirement, our lawyers can help you create an estate plan that meets your needs and goals, now and into the future. Rely on us for assistance with:
- Protecting your children — Our estate planning attorneys will help you create wills and trusts and guardianships that provide for your children’s care and financial well-being after your death. If your family includes a child with special needs, we will help you craft a special needs trust that protects his or her financial future and eligibility for government benefits programs.
- Protecting your rights and assets — As people age, it becomes increasingly important to protect their rights and assets in case of incapacity or death. Our firm will guide you through the process of establishing a health care proxy and a durable power of attorney that ensure your wishes are carried out if you are unable to make decisions about your finances or medical care and eliminate the need for a conservatorship. Additionally, we will help you create a trust that protects your assets and your eligibility for MassHealth should you need to move into a long-term care facility or a nursing home.
- Protecting your estate from taxes — Estate taxes can have a significant impact on the value of your estate. Our lawyers will help you establish a plan to minimize or eliminate estate taxes through gifting and the creation of trusts.
- Protecting your loved ones’ legacy — Losing a loved one is never easy. Our attorneys will guide you through the probate and estate administration process. If a will contest arises, you can rely on us for experienced representation.
