An essential, but often overlooked, aspect of an estate plan is planning for mental disability and avoiding a conservatorship or incapacity.  A conservatorship is a court supervised proceeding to manage an incapacitated person’s estate.  This process is similar to probate and can be very costly and time consuming.  To avoid the disadvantages of incapacity, the experienced attorneys at BTJD can help you create a revocable trust that provides for a successor trustee if something were to happen.  Additionally, we help clients create a power of attorney that gives another person power to act in your behalf in the event of incapacity.  Our experienced attorneys have extensive expertise in these areas  and would be happy to explain the different options to fit your financial goals and needs.
