Estate Planning Attorneys In New Mexico

Are you interested in creating an estate plan for yourself? Perhaps you want to help a parent or another older family member create an estate plan. At Mucci Law Firm, our attorneys have been creating effective wills, trusts and estate plans for people in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and throughout New Mexico since 2002. Let us help you plan for the future.

How To Create A Strong Estate Plan

The estate plans we create are strong because we first take the time to get to know you. We will learn about your financial situation, your family and your goals for the future. Because we are a comprehensive estate law firm that also handles estate disputes, we know the types of issues that can lead to a will contest and estate litigation. We know the steps that can be taken in the creation of an estate plan to minimize the chances of disputes arising. We use clear language and take care to see that nothing is overlooked.

We also encourage you to communicate with your family. In this day and age, it is easy for families to get disconnected. If you are creating an estate plan, talk to your loved ones about it and explain your intentions. If you know that someone you love is nearing the later stages of his or her life, make certain that you stay in touch. Know what is going on in that person's life. Who is helping that person from day to day? Who are that person's trusted confidants? This is not only enriching, it may minimize questions that arise when the details of an estate plan are revealed after an individual's death.

Estate Planning Components

Our lawyers use a full range of estate planning tools, including:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advance directives
  • HIPAA releases
  • Life insurance

A will is rarely sufficient, because it only addresses issues that arise after death. We believe that a strong estate plan also covers end-of-life affairs, so we frequently recommend powers of attorney and advance directives in all estate plans. For more complex estates or more unique wishes, trusts are also beneficial.
