Elk Grove, CA – Your last will and testament is one of the most important legal documents you will ever sign, and yet over 70 percent of American adults do not have a will.
Hartstrom is the founder of Hartstrom Law, an estate planning practice.
“We do two things: keep families out of court after someone passes away and keep the children from fighting over the estate,” says Hartstrom. “Grandpa only had one rocking chair and there's four children. Somebody's going to end up with it and three people won’t. It's simply a matter setting things ahead of time so the children know what's going to happen and how.”
According to Hartstrom, without a good plan in place, your children will encounter the buzzsaw of the court system as well as an enormous stack of paperwork. People spend days trying to file this paperwork while they're paying bills and making funeral arrangements and grieving the loss of their loved one. Hartstrom Law compiles all the necessary legal documents to essentially bypass this process all together.
“We design a trust so that you never even see the inside of a courtroom,” says Hartstrom. “Control of all assets in your trust is immediately passed to the person you've chosen to be your successor trustee.”
Hartstrom says the technical service he provides is only a small piece of the puzzle. It’s more about preserving your family’s memories, relationships, values, the things that they really care about and want to see their children and grandchildren carry with them.
