Estate planning is not just about who gets the house when you’re gone—it’s about articulating your dreams, wishes, and aspirations while you’re alive. 

The Law Office of Maxwell White is committed to helping you create an estate plan that is suited to your needs and ensures that your wishes will be carried out in the event of incapacity or death. 

Everybody has a legacy. Let us help you define yours. 


Control over distribution of assets

An estate plan allows you to dictate how your assets are distributed after your passing, ensuring your wishes are carried out.

Minimize taxes

A well-crafted estate plan can help minimize estate taxes and protect your assets from unnecessary tax liabilities.

Protect minor children

If you have minor children, an estate plan can help ensure they are taken care of in the event of your passing. You can name a guardian for your children and create a trust to provide for their financial needs.

Avoid probate

A properly structured estate plan can help your loved ones avoid the time, expense, and stress of the probate process.

Plan for incapacity

An estate plan can include documents such as a durable power of attorney and a healthcare proxy, allowing you to choose who will make decisions for you if you become incapacitated.

Preserve family harmony

Without a clear estate plan, family members may end up in disputes over who gets what, which can lead to significant discord and strain on relationships. An estate plan can help minimize the chances of family conflict and promote harmony.

Leave a legacy

An estate plan can help you leave a legacy by making charitable contributions, establishing a scholarship fund, or supporting a cause that is important to you.

Protect business interests

If you own a business, an estate plan can help ensure its continued success after your passing. You can name a successor and create a plan for the smooth transfer of ownership.

Peace of mind

Perhaps the most important reason to create an estate plan is the peace of mind it can provide. Knowing that you have a plan in place for the future can give you and your loved ones a sense of security and comfort.
