Though not a pleasant thing to consider, it is highly critical that you plan for your death or disability.   Spousal remarriage and a child's potential divorce are obvious concerns that need to be addressed. Avoiding probate and minimizing taxes are also important goals of good estate planning.

Estate planning consists of meeting the client's goals through properly drafted revocable living trusts, wills, enhanced durable powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney, living wills, beneficiary deeds, HIPAA releases, etc. which are specifically tailored to the needs of the client.

The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. This disclosure is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa. Memberships and offices in legal fraternities and legal societies, technical and professional licenses, and memberships in scientific, technical and professional associations and societies of law or field of practice do not mean that a lawyer is a specialist or expert in a field of law, nor do they mean that such lawyer is necessarily any more expert or competent than any other lawyer. All potential clients are urged to make their own independent investigation and evaluation of any lawyer being considered. This notice is required by rule of the Supreme Court of Iowa.
