Comprehensive Estate Planning Assistance

Unfortunately, many people put off thinking about estate planning because they believe they have plenty of time to put a plan in place. The future is, and always has been, unpredictable at best. Even if you think you have an idea of what is going to happen, you can never be completely sure. Unexpected events can have a significant impact upon your future and the future of your family.

At McDonald Warner, we help clients across the Phoenix metro area with their estate planning needs. Our team is led by our founding attorney, Kelly J. McDonald, who has more than 30 years of legal experience.

Working With You To Do What Is Best For Your Family

We make it a point to listen to what you want to accomplish. We do not try to force you into a one-size-fits-all plan. We will let you explain what you want to do, and then we will tell you the potential options we have available to achieve those goals. Estate planning matters we will address for you include:

  • Helping you compile a comprehensive record of your assets
  • Drafting a will or trust to pass along your property
  • Establishing a health care directive that states the medical care you should receive if incapacitated
  • Drafting powers of attorney
  • Modifying existing documents to meet your changing needs

When creating your estate plan, you need to be sure that it is uniquely designed to meet your goals. If you simply fill out a form on the internet, you could be making serious mistakes that place your assets at risk. Beneficiaries may not receive the property that you intended to pass along to them, and your assets could be challenged as your will moves through the probate process.

Our lawyers will work with you to design a thorough estate plan that meets all of the requirements under Arizona law. We will provide you with detailed advice about your plan and draft all of the necessary documents to carry out your final wishes.

Find The Right Estate Plan For Your Situation

We perform much of our estate planning work on a flat-fee basis, which will help you know exactly what it will cost to put your plan in place.
