Wills and Estate Planning

Martie Clark, St. Charles County Attorney

EstateNo one wants to plan for the death or illness of themselves or a loved one.  But time spent planning now can prevent significant loss and heartache later.  Mrs. Clark recommends that everyone have at least a Will and Durable Power of Attorney.  Some people may call this a “living will” or “healthcare directive.”  If you have significant assets you may want to consider a trust and the tax consequences of your estate in the event of your death.

Your situation may be unique if you have a disability, or a dependent with a disability.  Planning for the well-being of those you love after you are gone or unable to care for them yourself provides comfort and security.  Mrs. Clark will be pleased to provide you with options and a solution-based approach to your estate planning needs.
