OUR LEGAL SERVICES
Your family and goals are important to us — read on to learn about our areas of expertise and how we can help you reach your goals.
PROTECTING YOUR KIDS
If you are a parent of minor children (or those with special needs) who are counting on you, your estate plan must begin with your children would always be taken care of by the people you want, in the way you want, no matter what happens.
At Ionic Law Counsel, one of our areas of greatest expertise is planning for the well-being and care of the children you love.
Your Personal Family Lawyer® at Ionic Law Counsel will educate you, take the time to get to know you, your family, your concerns, your goals, and your issues and will gladly answer all your questions to create an estate plan that is exactly right for you and will keep your loved ones out of court and out of conflict.
Divorce, inheritance, health issues, creditors, employees, theft, changing markets, malpractice suits, sexual harassment claims, natural disasters and disgruntled business partners are just a few issues that can result in devastating lawsuits.
There are many different strategies to protect your assets while you are alive and after you are gone. To find out which strategies may be right for you, contact us for a Life & Legacy Planning Session.
The easiest way to avoid the probate process is to plan; but if you are now in a situation where you must go through probate courts to finalize the estate of a loved one, the best thing you can do is get educated and get help to complete the process as quickly, and cost-effectively, as possible.
PET PROTECTION PLANNING
Our fur babies depend on us for everything. They are counting on us to set up a plan for when we can’t take care of them. I have set up a unique Pet Protection Plan that will not only put the legal documents in place to provide for your fur babies, but also put up a practical system to ensure they are always safe and receive the best care. Depending on your needs, the plan could include a pet trust, power of attorney, and emergency alert kit. Call today to schedule a pet protection planning session today!
ESTATE TAX PLANNING
Families with high-value estates face several complex legal and tax issues—and the estate tax is only one of them. At Ionic Law Counsel, we offer a number of advanced estate planning strategies that are primarily aimed at reducing a family’s tax burden.
In addition to the estate tax, we also help families navigate the gift tax and generation-skipping tax to pass assets on for successive generations without risk of estate tax decimating the estate at each generation.
Take Control of Your Health Care
A complete estate plan includes documents that put you in control of your health care. These documents, known as advance directives, let you choose who should make medical decisions for you if you’re unable to communicate. You can also provide that person with guidance about what kinds of treatments you’d like to receive and those you’d like to avoid.
24/7 Protection for You & Your Family
Your doctors and loved ones need to have a copy of your advance directives when you’re hospitalized so they know your wishes. It’s impossible to predict emergencies, and it’s impractical to carry around a pile of papers all the time. If your advance directives are unavailable, your loved ones may argue or leave your side to search for them.
We want to make sure stressful hospital visits go as smoothly as possible for you and your loved ones. That’s why you’ll receive a complimentary DocuBank membership when you complete your estate plan at FIRM NAME. This unique service lets your family and doctors immediately access your advance directives right from the hospital.
Carry Your Documents Right in Your Wallet
Your DocuBank Emergency Card is the key to accessing your advance directives. Simply keep it in your wallet and your documents are right there with you! Your card lets you, your loved ones, or the hospital staff immediately get a copy of your documents by fax or the internet—24 hours a day.
That means that your loved ones will know your wishes and won’t have to argue over who should make decisions and what you’d want.
