When many people hear the term estate planning, they think it refers only to the distribution of assets after death. That is part of it, of course, but truly effective estate planning addresses important issues during one’s lifetime and in end-of-life situations.
For example, a well-designed estate plan will ensure that a person of your choosing can make medical and financial decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. Without a plan, someone may petition the court to gain control over your medical care and assets. This could very well be a person you would not want to make important decisions on your behalf. The court processes involved, known as guardianship and conservatorship, are time-consuming, frustrating, and expensive.

Serving Families Through Private & Convenient Zoom Meetings
I first met Mike Rutkowski when my mom needed to update her estate plan, Will and establish a “Living Trust”. In the year that followed, Mike provided us with continuous support through challenges in Probate Court by mom’s family and subsequent revisions to mom’s estate plan and Will. Since mom’s passing, Mike has continued to give me great support as the Trustee of her estate. Recently, I chose Mike’s firm to set up my own Will and Trust. Rutkowski Law Firm and its staff have been a constant support to me at every step of the process. I would recommend Rutkowski Law Firm to any and every one for issues related to Wills, Trusts, Probate, etc. Definitely a reputable firm to trust with your life planning. I give my highest recommendation to this firm for their honesty, integrity and reliability.
After procrastinating for many years I finally decided to get my will and trust done. I expected it to be a lengthy and cumbersome process but I was pleasantly surprised! I chose Rutkowski Law Firm because I saw an ad in the local paper and they were convenient to where I lived. What I got was “white glove” treatment, a very professional and friendly staff, and most importantly, immediate response to all my questions and concerns. I worked with Michael Rutkowski and Trisha Harris—a great team! Without hesitation I would recommend them to anyone looking to get their “affairs in order”.
