Estate Lawyer


Estate law is regulated by state and federal government. At the state level, these laws cover living wills, trust creation, and probate. State and federal laws regulate taxes placed on recipients of property from an estate. Estate law also controls the creation of living wills, which let individuals dictate their desired healthcare if they become too sick or injured to make decisions on their own.

States have considerable autonomy with estate laws, but there is a Uniform Probate Code (UPC) that seeks to clarify and unify estate laws nationwide. Estate planning law also covers the creation of wills, the resolving of probate cases, and situations involving power of attorney.
