Estate Planning and You

Understanding What Estate Planning Is…  and What It’s Not!

Looking into the future…when you die!

Few people know when they will die. It’s never me and it’s never today. But what if death was your fate today, or tomorrow or next month? Have you prepared for the reality your survivors will have to deal with after you’re gone? Is your spouse protected? Did you address how to ensure that your money will be safeguarded through a trust for your children? Will the government steal your hard earned money in death taxes? If you’re feeling anxious about what I just said, then good. Read this site and let’s get you prepared.

Aging, Declining, and Estate Planning

Many families whose lives are affected by disability, mental or physical incapacity and/or illness also worry about the future for their survivors.  Who will care for my loved one when I am gone? Will he or she have the financial support, resources and services that they need? Who will look out for them? Who will help them make important medical, financial and life care decisions?

“My son is an attorney in New Jersey. I am retired and live in Ocean County, New Jersey about 45 minutes away from my son. I needed a lawyer to look at my estate planning documents including Will, Power of Attorney and Health Care Directive. My son recommended Hanlon Niemann in Freehold, New Jersey, specifically Fredrick P. Niemann. I took his advice and met with Mr. Niemann. I am glad that I did. He is a warm and engaging person. No pretense, no airs about him. I immediately felt at ease and we talked about everything that I wanted to do and accomplish with my estate planning. I felt I could open up to him and tell him what was really important to me. He prepared the documents as we discussed and sent them to me in advance to review and approve. Then he scheduled me for a signature session where my appointment was promptly kept and a friendly, positive staff witnessed all of my documents. My son, the attorney, gave me good advice when he recommended Mr. Niemann.

If you are searching for a special attorney, someone who is experienced, likeable as a person and professional, call Mr. Niemann. I felt good about my choice.”
