Estate Planning And Probate Services To Protect Your Family

Who will get your property after you die? What will happen to your children? Estate planning is a way to answer these questions and take care of your loved ones when you are no longer able to.

At Ed Shaw Law, we help provide estate planning services to individuals and families at all stages of their lives. Our firm has over 25 years of experience handling estate planning for the Brainerd Lakes area so you can feel assured that your requests will be heard and your estate is in good hands.

What Goes Into An Estate Plan?

Your estate planning needs are as unique as you are and can change as life does. An estate plan may be as simple as a basic will, or you may wish to include a trust or advance medical directives and powers of attorney.

The goals of estate planning include directing disposition of your property at death, minimizing taxes and costs, simplifying the administration of your estate, and creating certainty for your loved ones.

Compassionate Guidance Through The Probate Process

We also help family members navigate the probate process after the death of a loved one. During this difficult time, it is important to have someone who can handle things for you so that you can focus on you and your family.

Ed Shaw will personally handle your probate questions with compassion and respect. He will meet with you to explain the entire probate process and answer all questions that you may have. All necessary documents will be prepared and filed for you, making the legal process as easy as possible.
