While no one wants to think about the end of his or her life, legal steps must be taken in the form of estate planning. Regardless of the size of an estate, you want to make sure that your wishes are enforced. Designating beneficiaries and determining your course of medical care should not be put in the hands of family members or a judge.

An estate plan can take many forms that include various types of wills and trusts. It can also minimize estate, gift and income taxes and provide money for children that have special needs. Specific areas of the estate planning practice at the North Carolina-based law firm of Davis, Sturges & Tomlinson, Attorneys at Law, include the following:
- Living trusts
- Powers of attorney and health care powers of attorney
- Living wills
- HIPAA authorizations
- Charitable trusts
- Life insurance trusts
- Special needs trusts
- Generation-skipping trusts and dynasty trusts
- Marital trusts
- Estate, gift and income tax planning
With the help of an experienced lawyer, estate planning provides peace of mind for all involved. Should you be incapacitated by illness or injury, a designated family member makes decisions on the course of your care. Beneficiaries engaged in will contests over assets and property must abide by the document you had drafted that spells out any inheritances.
