Planning for Peace of Mind

When our clients finish signing their estate planning documents, they often tell us, “What a relief to have that done!” Most people put off doing an estate plan, and many times they let it go until it is too late: they have lost capacity, have become disabled, or have passed away. Now their family is left to pick up the pieces, by going through a lengthy probate. This isn't necessary.

You can have an estate plan designed which ensures YOUR estate is passed along to the people YOU want it to go to, in the manner YOU desire. Left to probate, however, the state courts will often distribute your hard-earned assets in a way which you would have never wanted in life.

We can help anyone by designing an estate plan for you which suits your unique situation and desires. Every family is different, every client has needs and experiences which direct their wishes. We will work with you to create your plan, to do what you want, not hand you some off-the-shelf document with your name filled in on the signature line, which cannot truly address your situation.

The feeling of helping families preserve and pass along the assets earned by a lifetime's hard work is why Nina does what she does.

Nina Whitehurst, the owner of Cumberland Legacy Law, is a member of Wealth Counsel, Elder Counsel, and the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. She is continually upgrading and updating her knowledge of estate planning law through seminars and being an active member of several estate planning attorney forums. Her husband, Brian Whitehurst, is the firm's marketing coordinator.
