Wills and Trusts

These legally binding documents can simplify the entire process of asset distribution, medical treatment, and other life events. Estate planning attorneys at our Iowa law firm can answer your questions about wills and trusts, and help you decide the best solutions for you and your loved ones. We also understand the importance of carrying out individual wishes and draft each client’s legal documents accordingly.

Wills. A comprehensive will can ensure that your assets pass on to the correct beneficiaries. Your will can also dictate the legal guardian for your children, should they be minors at the time of your incapacitation or death. Additionally, a living will dictates your wishes for medical treatment and quality of life preferences in the event of major illness or injuries.

Trusts. A trust offers peace of mind to your family after your death by helping to avoid a costly and lengthy probate process. A trust also protects a loved one with special needs by allowing them to inherit money without losing government benefits.
