After professional expertise, an estate attorney’s experience is the most important factor for providing clients with the results they desire and deserve. Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn offers our clients both. A strong estate attorney understands how important it is to represent a client’s interests with care, concern for the assets involved, and the fulfillment of wishes about how the clients’ assets will be distributed and reconciled in the future. We have established a reputation for being strong advocates of our clients’ interests and for providing expert knowledge of Minnesota probate (estate) law. Furthermore, we have extensive experience in this legal area, so if you have a question or concern about your estate that seems outside of the norm, the chances are good that we have dealt with it before and will be able to help you.
Comprehensive Estate Planning Services
The legal team at Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn has helped many people with estate issues ranging from simple estate planning to extremely complex probate matters. On the simple end of the estate planning spectrum is the creation of a will. We recommend that all adults have a will so that, in the event of a tragedy, your possessions, property, and assets go where you want them to go. Likewise, a will can ensure that your debts are settled without causing undue burden on your loved-ones. Establishing a will can also make the probate process simpler. If you include in your will a provision that states that the probate process should be conducted informally, the probate process may not need to go through the court.
Another important component of the probate process is naming a Power of Attorney. Power of Attorney is established by designating someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf in the event that you are not able to do so yourself. Most people will think of advancing age as the principle reason for transferring power of attorney. However, a power of attorney can be established earlier in life as a way of ensuring that a debilitating accident or unexpected illness does not result in delays in decision-making.
Experienced Estate Attorney
It is easy for most people to understand the benefit of planning in our day-to-day lives. Some of us plan out dinners for the week or schedule pet care months ahead of a family vacation. The importance of estate planning is similar, but far more consequential. The legal team at Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn recommends placing at least as much importance on estate planning as you do on the more immediate aspects of your life. We have the knowledge to help you do so in a way that can provide you with peace of mind. Call us at (763) 427-5131 and we will be happy to schedule a time to discuss your estate planning needs further.
