Personalized Estate Planning

AT BURROUGHS ELIJAH, LLC, we firmly believe that everyone can benefit from consulting an experienced attorney to develop an estate plan. Whether you are a single adult, newly married couple, large family, divorced, young or old, you can benefit from our legal services.

Most of you have probably seen the commercials for websites that offer simplistic and often ineffective legal documents at a low price. What we have found as attorneys is that by relying on these online resources, you may end up costing you and your family in the long run.

Would you trust your family’s health to a website? Would you trust a website to fix your car?

We believe that your family’s future and financial security deserves the attention of an experienced attorney. At Burroughs Elijah, LLC, we can work with you to develop a custom tailored estate plan that works specifically for you and fits into your budget. Let us give you the peace of mind that comes with having an estate plan prepared by a professional. Call us or stop by to schedule a free one-hour consultation with one of our attorneys.

PRACTICE AREAS

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?
  •     wills & trusts
    Last Will and Testament:

    Your Will serves as the foundation of your estate plan. Without a will, the laws of your state will determine to whom your property is transferred upon your death.

    Revocable Trust:
    A revocable trust operates like a will to manage and dispose of your property at death.
    Irrevocable Trust:
    An Irrevocable Trust can take many different forms and serve a variety of purposes. Some examples of this type of trust include Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts, Gifting Trusts, and Asset Protection Trusts. Contact us for more info on our practice areas.

  •     probate & ESTATE Administration
    When a loved one passes away,

    the surviving family members are left with the difficult task of administering the decedent’s estate while coping with their own personal grief and healing. The experienced attorneys at Burroughs Elijah, LLC will provide you with the counsel and guidance you need during the estate administration process. In most circumstances, probate will be required before assets in a decedent’s estate can be distributed to the beneficiaries. Burroughs Elijah, LLC can help families determine whether probate is necessary and decide the best course of action for settling a decedent’s estate.

  •     long term care planning
    Medicaid Benefits:

    The Medicaid programs in Georgia and South Carolina do not cover nursing home expenses until a client is virtually destitute. Many times, a surviving spouse is left with nothing to live on after their significant other has spent time in a nursing home.

    VA Improved Pension:
    is a reimbursement paid to veterans or their widows to help supplement the costs of long-term care providers such as in-home medical service providers, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes. Many people are unaware that these benefits exist specifically to cover long-term care costs.

  •     ESTATE planning
    A complete estate plan,

    at a minimum, consists of a Last Will and Testament, Property Power of Attorney, and an Advanced Directive for Health Care. Each of these documents is necessary to plan, not only for death, but also for incapacity. Without a will, the default rules of the State will determine who receives property from an estate. Without a Property Power of Attorney or an Advanced Directive for Health Care, family members will need to pursue Guardianship and/or Conservatorship through the courts before they can assist with managing finances or making health care decisions for a loved one. At Burroughs Elijah, LLC, we consider finances, family dynamics, tax consequences, and many other factors to provide each of our clients with a custom-fit estate plan.
