Trust Lucent Law for Estate Planning

Life takes many twists and turns, whether you’re a younger person just getting started with your career, starting a family or embarking upon retirement. We want to help you plan for the unexpected no matter your stage of life. Lucent Law has the experience, understanding, and expertise to help you plan for the life you want to lead and protect your life’s work for your loved ones or your favorite charity.

We offer both will-based and trust-based estate planning services, along with the full range of lifetime planning services. Our clients who choose will-based planning are able to control the distribution of their assets upon passing in a manner consistent with their goals. Clients who choose trust-based planning typically want more privacy regarding the distributions of assets, want to simplify the distribution of assets to beneficiaries, or want to avoid the probate process.

As important as having a plan in place for your passing is having the proper protections in place during your lifetime. Lucent Law is ready to help you with your lifetime health and financial planning as well, including financial and healthcare powers of attorney, community property agreements, and advance healthcare directives.

We know that long term care costs can be a significant burden for many people, so we also offer advice concerning qualification for Medicaid eligibility.

All of our estate planning services include notary and witness services in our office and we can provide mobile notarization services upon request. We also include a complimentary Estate Planning Checkup Service, where we’ll reach out to you about every six months to see if any changes have occurred in your circumstance which may require adjustments to your estate planning.

We can help you achieve your estate planning goals through a variety of services, including:

Powers of Attorney

Avoid court intervention if you become incapacitated, as so many of us will - save time and money and control the appointment of a trusted family member or advisor to care for your financial and/or healthcare matters by executing a durable power of attorney.

Advance Medical Directives

Also known as an advance healthcare directive, or a living will, this vital document permits you to make your wishes known for various healthcare decisions to be made if you are unable to do so. All Lucent Law estate planning clients receive an advance medical directive included as part of our estate planning services.

Medicaid

Lucent Law will work with you to evaluate your estate plan and implement the best options to preserve your property distribution goals in the context of the financial burden of long term care that often requires middle class families to apply for Medicaid. Knowledge and pre-planning are the keys to avoiding Medicaid application eligibility pitfalls and excessive spend down.
