Your Legacy Is Priceless

Few activities are more important, yet more intimidating, than planning for your own long-term security. Many people put off the crucial tasks of preparing a Will and an Estate plan until it is too late – simply because of the complexities and emotions involved.

With competent legal assistance, you can create a plan to protect yourself and the rights of your loved ones, and ensure that your assets are distributed as you intend when you pass away. Otherwise, the Commonwealth's probate and estate laws may dictate distribution of your assets – resulting in unintended consequences and family conflict.

The attorneys at Heiligman & Mogul, P.C. take a proactive, global view of your estate needs and address them. They provide conscientious, considerate attention at a time that may be highly emotional.
