Myrtle Beach Attorney Assisting Families with Expert Estate Planning Services In South Carolina For Decades

As we grow older, we realize that life is unpredictable, and planning for the future is essential. Estate planning is a critical process that helps protect your assets and ensures your loved ones are cared for after you’re gone.

Our practice caters to ordinary people. We don’t charge a consultation for estate planning meetings. All estate planning documents are prepared for a flat, competitive fee. Litigation is handled at an hourly rate.

Attorney David Mason provides estate planning, will contests, and other fiduciary and probate disputes for his clients. He utilizes his experience to advise clients in estate planning and how to avoid unnecessary will contests, litigation, and fiduciary issues. No one wants their family members fighting over their belongings.

Depending on the needs of your family, some of the estate planning services we provide are:

Last Will and Testament: Commonly known as a will, this document can tell the court who you want to receive your things, name guardians of minor children, and state how you would like your remains disposed of, among other things.

Financial Power of Attorney: A financial power of attorney names a person (or persons) to make financial decisions for you should you become unable to make them yourself. Taking this step early could prevent the need for the court to appoint someone and could save your family thousands of dollars.

Healthcare Power of Attorney: Similar to the financial power of attorney, this document names a person who can make decisions regarding your healthcare if you are incapacitated. It also allows you to make clear your wishes regarding organ donation and the degree of life-sustaining measures you desire.

Living Wills: Make your own decisions about medical care in a medical emergency. You don’t want to place the burden of making that decision on someone else’s shoulders.

Planning For the Future of Your Business: Known as an LLC, this entity can help protect business owners from personal liability. It is also crucial, however, to address the future of a business, especially a family-owned business. Every business is unique, so no blanket plan is best for every business.

Devising a plan before a need arises can help families save time and money while avoiding disputes during emotional moments. With a plan already in place, it is possible that families can:

Avoid probate – Estates can end up in probate for years, bleeding the estate of its resources and leaving families with little or nothing when the court process resolves and final debts are paid. With the proper planning, it is possible to avoid probate entirely.

Preserve family relationships – All too often, surviving family members argue over the assets when there is no clear plan. The rifts created in these situations are sometimes never repaired. A comprehensive estate plan leaves no uncertainty; family members have no reason for a dispute.

Protect assets – Proper planning can protect the estate from taxes, creditors, probate costs, or litigation over your money or property, preserving the maximum amount of your resources for your loved ones.

Every family situation is unique, and each estate plan that David provides is formulated with the specific needs and goals of the client in mind. It is his aim to preserve your legacy and provide for your family, and this can be done with the aid of a skilled attorney and the foresight to have these difficult discussions now.
