Everyone Deserves A Thorough Estate Plan
Many people think that they do not have a large enough estate to consider crafting an estate plan. However, an estate plan is less about your assets and more about the people you will leave behind. An estate plan is one way to show your family that you care about them and what they will go through.

She has earned a reputation for strength and toughness, but those come from a place of compassion for the people she represents. She serves estate planning clients in Northampton, Carbon, Monroe, Lehigh, Schuylkill, Delaware, Montgomery, Chester, Berks, and Bucks counties.
What Makes An Estate Plan?
An estate plan includes several documents that work together to guide your family for the future. A fully realized estate plan may include the following:
- Will: The guiding document of an estate plan, a will can provide an overview of what your wishes are as well as assign specific assets to certain heirs.
- Trusts: These are legal entities you assign your assets to as part of your estate plan to avoid taxes and probate.
- Power of attorney: If you are incapacitated, you can assign a person to take control of your assets when you no longer can.
- Advance medical directives: This series of orders and wishes describes how you would like your medical treatment to be dealt with when you cannot make the decision yourself.
The only person who can decide when it’s time to craft your estate plan is you. However, when you’re ready, attorney Crouthamel will be here for you.
