It's important to work with an attorney on your estate plan. The attorney's role will include guiding you through the creation of fundamental estate planning documents. These may include a will, health care proxy, and durable power of attorney.
You'll make the decisions, but your attorney can help you think through and understand the sometimes complex implications of each option. They will also help you communicate your wishes clearly, avoid mistakes, minimize taxes, and adjust your plans as time goes by or your circumstances change.
