You Have Worked Hard. Protect Your Assets With An Estate Plan.

Many people assume they don’t need an estate plan because they don’t consider themselves to be wealthy. But even if you aren’t rich, you have worked hard to earn the assets you have, and you should get to decide what happens to them when you are no longer around to enjoy the fruits of your labor.

By having a well-written estate plan in place, you can ensure that your family and other loved ones will be taken care of in your absence. And with the help of the experienced attorneys at Pagel Hager Law Firm, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your estate plan is thorough, legally sound and easy to update as circumstances warrant.

Each estate plan is customized to its owner, but yours will likely include some or all of the following:

  • Creation of wills and other vital documents
  • Trusts and trust administration
  • Powers of attorney
  • Living wills and health care directives
  • Guardianships
