Regardless of what your estate is worth, you deserve the right to pass it to your heirs in any way you wish. But there is a problem…
You did things the right way. You worked hard, paid your taxes, provided for your family and have some money set aside for your retirement. The problem is, despite the fact that you did things the right way, you will be punished and could lose all or a substantial amount of your savings and your home if you or your spouse (if married) need to go to a nursing home. Whereas the guy down the street who didn’t do things the right way, who never saved, who took every vacation, who was never concerned about paying taxes, will be taken care of. The system is stacked against you. You need to learn what you can do about it. Now.
There are proactive steps you can take right now to protect a dilution of your hard-earned assets. Let The Forrestal Law Office show you how.
Planning for the preservation and distribution of your estate is highly personal and very rewarding. You want the peace of mind knowing your affairs are in order.

You need legal assistance from an attorney who stays current on the latest changes in estate planning laws.

If you’ve spent most of your adult life creating a comfortable lifestyle for yourself and your family, then you probably already know this harsh reality. There are many outside forces which can dramatically reduce the size of your estate. In addition to the need for long-term care (nursing home), you must also be concerned about unnecessary taxes, probate and the threat of lawsuits that can literally rob you and your heirs of the assets you’ve worked so diligently to accumulate.
With wisely crafted and carefully executed estate and long-term care plans, you can preserve your wealth for your own financial security and for the benefit of those you love.
