Estate Planning

No one wants to think about what happens after they die. But, the consequences of failing to make an estate plan can be devastating. In South Carolina, the state divides your assets using a set of laws known as intestate succession if you die without a valid will and estate plan in place. Rather than leaving it up to the state to decide, and risk disappointing loved ones who are left out of the formulaic laws, customize your estate plan with the help of our estate planning lawyers in Columbia SC

Why You Need an Estate Plan 

There are many benefits to preparing an estate plan. A comprehensive plan will protect your assets from tax burdens and some legal actions, while helping you qualify for Medicare and other benefits. If you are a business owner, estate planning is fundamental for business continuity. For parents, an estate plan is vital in selecting the person that will care for your child in the event of an untimely passing.

I've met with Josh Pozsik to talk over some issues and he is wonderful to work with. He really cares about his clients and listens. Again, he listens! People I've spoken with before listen and get busy thinking about what they want to say in regards to the first few sentences said instead of listening completely so they can give a correct answer. I had all of Mr. Pozsik's attention and I appreciated it. Shannon H.
