New Jersey Estate Planning Attorney Reminds Families About Estate Planning Awareness Week
Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) October 11, 2011 - “National Estate Planning Awareness Week” October 17-23 reminds individuals and their families about the importance of planning for long-term decisions and asset protection. Estate planning is a complex matter and individuals should seek a qualified estate planning attorney to tailor a plan specific to their financial goals and family needs. Without proper planning, individuals could risk their savings and greatly affect their loved ones after they pass away.
“Estate plans take the stress out of all the issues that need to be addressed such as a will, trust, and end of life decisions,” said New Jersey estate planning attorney Tom Begley Jr., of the Begley Law Group P.C. “Many tax, government benefit, and legal considerations need to be figured out to successfully plan for the future.”
Begley Law Group was recently named one of Philadelphia Business Journal’s Top 25 South Jersey Law Firms. The firm has served the Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia region for more than 75 years. The National Association of Estate Planners & Councils says that more than 120 million people nationwide do not have estate plans and could risk their assets and deal with emotional hardship if a family member got chronically ill, was in a bad accident, or passed away unexpectedly.
“It is never too early to plan and make your wishes known,” said Begley. “Many people want to name their grandchildren, a charity, or make sure a spouse is set up adequately. But if you do not plan for this and do not review your estate plan every couple of years, you could really jeopardize your legacy.”
Begley Law Group’s attorneys also have a wealth of experience helping children and adults with special needs, are seen as leaders in elder law, and are aware of the latest changes to laws affecting these groups.

- UNDERSTANDING PARENTING IN THE CONTEXT OF SPECIAL NEEDS PLANNING
by Thomas D. Begley, Jr., CELA Representing clients in connection with planning for children with disabilities involves a lot more than simply preparing documents. Many lawyers who enter the field of Special Needs Planning have family members who suffer from disabilities and have had first-hand experience with the problem. Good legal advice begins with understanding the problem. For most parents, the concern is what will happen to the child after the parent(s) are gone. While the parents are alive, they will do whatever it takes to achieve the best life possible for their child with disabilities. After they are gone, [...]
- Annuities – The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Thomas A. Lane, Jr., ChFC®, CFP® of the Lane Hipple Wealth Management Group “I HATE annuities, and you should too” is a popular marketing campaign utilized by a national investment advisory firm to create uncertainty and fear among annuity owners with the hope they will seek out their firm who will then “rescue” them from these “horrific” products. Is there any basis or truth to such a comment? I can only assume that the owner of that firm probably does hate annuities. That said, he is making a very broad statement inferring that ALL annuities are bad, which, of course, [...]
- The Benefits of Bloodline Trusts
By Thomas D. Begley, Jr., Esquire, CELA When Should You Consider a Bloodline Trust? A Bloodline Trust offers protection to your children from: (1) divorce, (2) creditors, (3) death of children and subsequent remarriages of children’s spouses, and (4) squandering the money. Divorce The old saying, “We can pick our friends, but we can’t pick our family,” is particularly applicable in the case of sons- and daughters-in-law. Often, our children choose wonderful, trustworthy spouses with whom we get along very well. But occasionally, they choose partners who cannot be trusted, leaving us concerned for the emotional and financial well-being of [...]
