Glen Burnie & Columbia Trusts & Estates Lawyer
When seeking out legal representation for estate planning and estate administration, many people go to specialists who handle only one or two areas of law. However, the concerns and issues you will be addressing while creating your estate plan do not occur in isolation. They are connected with other areas of the law and other aspects of your life. For this reason, it is a tremendous benefit to work with a full-service law firm that coordinates your estate plan with all aspects of your life.
At the Law Offices of Todd K. Mohink, PA, we provide comprehensive legal services to clients in all aspects of trusts and estates. Our Glen Burnie & Columbia trust & estate lawyers take a wide view of our clients’ legal needs by creating coordinated, intelligent and effective estate plans.
Helping You Create Your Estate Plan
We can help you create a comprehensive estate plan that includes:
- Wills and powers of attorney: The will is the foundational estate planning document that directs your estate plan. Powers of attorney in Maryland can grant general or limited powers to someone else to make decisions regarding financial issues. Advance health care directives and health care powers of attorney transfer medical decision-making authority.
- Trusts: A trust instrument is a valuable tool for retaining control over the transfer of assets and minimizing estate tax penalties.
- Property deeds: There are unique laws regulating the transfer of property deeds in Maryland. Work with an experienced attorney who can help you create a deed transfer or update your property deed.
Establishing and Managing Estates
When exploring your estate planning options, it is important to consider all of the important details regarding your legal needs. While some people want to create a simple will with one step and leave it at that, it is important to see the big picture. In addition to your will, it is beneficial to consider trusts, health care and financial powers of attorney, and other relevant estate planning instruments. In addition, it is critical to work with an attorney who can help you manage your estate plan and make changes as the need arises.

Helping You And Your Family Settle A Loved One’s Estate
It is extremely important to receive professional guidance when a loved one has died to determine the requirements for distributing assets and paying estate and inheritance tax. Even if it appears there are few assets or that they are jointly titled, there are still steps that should be taken to insure compliance with the law and that the survivors are receiving the full benefits to which they are entitled. Failure to deal with these matters can end up being very costly and lead to possible litigation.
