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.

by Kevin M. Buttery, Esquire When planning your estate, it is often advisable to utilize a trust to effect one or more of your goals. The trustee of such a trust can, and in certain circumstances should, be a corporate entity, also known as a corporate fiduciary. However, you may not want to relinquish control of your assets to somebody outside of the family.
