When you die, what will become of your assets? We at Nutmeg State Cremation Society understand that this is not a pleasant topic to consider. Still, a financial adviser specializing in estate planning mustn't want you to avoid it.

How to Find a Good Estate Planning Lawyer

Your estate plan will likely include a list of objectives you wish to accomplish. The experience and estate tools of a financial advisor can help you design an estate plan that addresses all of your objectives. Consider the following when you start your search:

  • Finding a good estate planning lawyer should naturally begin online. Google and other search engines can help you find local financial advisors; however, the results can quickly become overwhelming.
  • Therefore, it is preferable to begin your quest by asking for suggestions from people you know.
  • Ask friends and family members in similar circumstances who they use. To obtain the most relevant advice, the individuals should have a present financial condition that resembles your own.
  • You could also ask other experts with whom you collaborate for referrals. Your lawyer or attorney might be an excellent recommendation source.
  • You should interview many advisors before deciding on a partner. Look for an estate planning lawyer specializing in wills, estates and trusts and making it their major profession when searching for one.
  • You can determine the advisor's expertise by their degrees and certifications. For example, the accredited estate planner, or AEP, title offered by the NAEPC is a master's degree for estate planning specialists. Other designations for estate planning include the CTEP and the CTFA.
