Marca is responsive, knowledgeable and thorough. She set up my company’s LLC formation and applied for my EIN with the IRS. Even though the IRS wasn’t very responsive, Marca stayed on top of them and kept me updated along the way. She has helped me with my Letter of Agreement, assuring it works for all potential clients in all situations and is legally binding. I definitely recommend her to other business owners, family and friends!Candace Huber
Quality estate planning includes more than just a will. A comprehensive plan provides all the legal documents your loved ones and healthcare providers will need to honor your wishes thoroughly and without question.
Estate planning packages include:
Last Will and Testament
Ensures your wishes are honored regarding your assets upon your death. A well-written will provides your loved ones with instructions and helps them avoid much of the hassle and cost that comes with managing your estate after your death.
Statutory Durable Power of Attorney
Is an important tool in incapacity planning. This Power of Attorney can become effective upon your incapacity and ceases upon your death.
Absent a Power of Attorney, if an individual becomes incapacitated, no one may gain access to his or her assets or make other important medical, financial or legal decisions for his or her benefit without establishing a court appointed Guardianship.
Even married couples need powers of attorney to avoid calamity in the event of incapacitation. If one spouse becomes incapacitated due to an accident or illness, the non-incapacitated spouse cannot legally refinance the house or sell it (because it is owned in both names), cannot change IRA or 401(k) investments (since they are solely in the name of the incapacitated spouse), and cannot deal with the incapacitated spouse’s business interests, life insurance or annuities . The simple process of completing a well drafted and thorough Durable Power of Attorney solves all of these problems.
Declaration of Guardian for Client and Minor Children
Guardianship of Children – If you have children, it is very important to designate guardians in the event you are incapacitated or pass away. Without this document, if there is ever a need for your children to have a guardian, the court will determine who should raise your kids in your stead.
Guardianship of Person & Estate – Should you require a guardian, this declaration allows you to choose who will serve as that guardian. Without this document, the court will be left to determine the best person for the job, and it may not be a person of your choosing.
Medical Power of Attorney & Physicians Directive
States an individual’s preferences with regard to heroic measures and whether or not they should be taken to preserve his or her life if there is no chance of recovery from a tragic illness or injury.
A Physicians Directive provides clear direction for your spouse, children or others who might otherwise be conflicted about such matters. Physicians directives are an important part of an estate plan, as they remove some of the heavy emotional burden from family members and can eliminate the erosion of an individual’s estate through avoidance of interminable medical bills.
Medical Powers of Attorney are used to designate one or more people to step into the patient’s shoes to make medical decisions and is used in conjunction with a Physicians Directive.
Entity formation is an essential step in operating a business. Creating an entity helps protect your personal assets from business creditors as well as employees, clients and lawsuits.
There are a variety of entities in Texas, and it is important to select the appropriate entity. Corporations, Limited Liability Companies (LLC), and Limited Partnerships (LP) are some of the options for Texas business owners.
My entity formation services include ascertaining an Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the IRS, drafting the required documents for formation, ordering custom Corporate Notebooks, and ensuring my clients properly execute formation documents.
