Trust & Estate Planning Lawyer in Rhode Island

Planning for & Protecting the Future

Every life eventually comes to an end, but this inevitability doesn't have to bring hardship to your loved ones. The best protection for your spouse, children, and causes you care about is to have a plan in place that takes care of those left behind. As a Rhode Island estate planning lawyer with over a decade of trial and litigation experience, Attorney Kara Hoopis Manosh can help you devise a plan that covers your family's needs and helps keep your loved ones out of court after you've passed away.

What Is an Estate Plan?

A simple Estate Plan should accomplish the following goals:

  • Devise your wealth,
  • Appoint a guardian for your children,
  • Plan for medical and financial incapacity, and
  • Organize your financial documents so that your loved ones are not left scrambling.

This is done with a variety of legal documents and strategies to ensure you enjoy peace of mind knowing that you have planned for every possibility.

We listen to your story and help craft a unique plan for your estate that covers, among other things:

  • Last Will and Testament: Your will is the heart of your estate plan. It tells the world what you own, where it's at, and how you want it distributed when you're gone. There are a lot of rules for how to draft a binding will, however, and only a qualified Rhode Island estate planning lawyer can be trusted to get it right.
  • Trust and Charitable Giving Planning: A trust can be a powerful tool for transferring wealth to heirs. Likewise, you may leave a bequest to your church or other charity. A trust can preserve your assets, avoid estate taxes, and transfer property without having to go through the probate process.
  • Healthcare Directives: We all have unique medical needs, and an advance directive (sometimes called a "living will") can tell doctors what you want done before you're under their care. We help you make your desires known in advance, so there's no confusion when you're in need.
  • Financial Power of Attorney: If you become ill, or are injured beyond the ability to make decisions for yourself, somebody has to step in for you. If you haven't named a person in advance, the court may assign someone. We help you avoid that uncertainty by assigning a person power of attorney before it becomes a point of dispute.
  • Guardianship for Your Children: Easily the most important part of estate planning for parents is deciding who will raise your children in your place. We help you devise a firm plan to eliminate uncertainty and help your kids make the transition.
