ServicesWills, Trust, Estate Planning & Probate
Wills and Trusts are essential tools of Estate Planning that can help ensure your assets are protected and bequeathed to your heirs. Therefore, it becomes inevitable for someone not to consider these tools for their own future well-being and to avoid any further repercussions.
Why considering an Estate Plan is important?
Considering an Estate plan is not just about whether or not you are wealthy but, it’s more about ensuring your hard-earned assets are protected and go to the people you love or to the communities/organizations that you care about.
An Estate Plan enables a person to be legally covered with all the problems that one’s family or loved ones might face after the death of their own. These are important legal documents that explain how you want your assets divided and prepare a comprehensive plan for yourself.
Consequently, when it comes to preparing Wills, Trusts, or Estate Planning documents and more, it is crucial to approach a qualified and experienced legal expert. The Cowlitz Law Group PLLC has been serving in this field for a while, assisting our clients with excellent legal advice on property, asset protection and preservation.

A legal document wherein it states all the details of how you want your affairs handled and assets distributed after your death. This legal document is in accordance with the state law whilst drafted and executed by a qualified attorney. The most common type of Will is a Testamentary Will, while others include Holographic Wills, Oral Wills, and Pour-Over Wills. In many instances, Pour-Over Wills are in conjunction with Trusts to avoid the Probate process.
If the decedent dies without an Estate Plan, it’s most likely that the assets and belongings will be distributed according to the laws of the State. The Probate Court may distribute the person’s property to people whom they have not wished or chosen as their heirs. To avoid this, the Cowlitz Law Group attorneys will help you to draft, execute, and navigate your Estate Plans in accordance with your needs.
