Dedham Estate Planning Lawyer

Where Family Comes First

Planning your legacy is best handled by a firm of experienced practitioners that exclusively concentrate on estate planning, like ours. Since 1987, the Law Office of Frederick N. Pellegrini has helped individuals, small business owners, and families throughout Dedham protect their families not just today, but for generations. We take a comprehensive approach to estate planning, which is why our practice areas also span business law, special needs planning, tax planning, and more. Contrary to popular belief, estate planning is not the transfer of assets after someone dies but rather focuses on ongoing family planning to avoid the probate process after death,

Unlike many attorneys, we prioritize the transfer of assets into a trust. This is a critical yet often overlooked element of estate planning, as transferring assets into a trust is fundamental in ensuring the trust is effective. Think about it this way — a trust is like a bank account. A bank account won’t work without funds, and similarly, a trust will not work without the inclusion of assets. For this reason, our estate planning attorney is one of the handfuls of lawyers in the US that funds clients’ assets into their trust. Believe it or not, many law firms do not handle this important step in the process, which is why we invest the time, diligence, and resources needed to enhance clients’ financial lives during their lifetime and beyond.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

We want you to have clarity on what to expect when you work with us. Our Dedham estate planning attorney is focused on understanding clients and their needs first and foremost, which is why we have three meetings to accomplish this.

The first meeting intends to educate clients, learn about their families, and review their assets. As such, we discuss the basics of estate planning, including:

Our lawyer will learn the family dynamics concerning clients’ relationships, family members with disabilities, money management, and more. In addition, we will collaborate on suitable successors to be personal representatives, trustees, appointees on powers of attorney, healthcare proxies, guardians, and the like. Our ultimate goal is to teach clients how to protect their families for several generations.

At the second meeting, we will draft and review preliminary documents in accordance with our clients’ asset compositions. These documents include:

  • Will
  • Power of attorney
  • Health care proxy
  • Revocable trust
  • Real estate trust

At every stage in the process, we will show clients how their trust operates in conjunction with their documents. For instance, our lawyer will explain how a trust helps clients avoid probate, protect assets, reduce estate taxes, provide generational planning, and more. We really break it down for clients, so they truly understand how their documents function and impact their overall estate plan.

Should a client decide to retain us at the end of the second meeting, we will gather statements copies of their financial assets to transfer into their trust. The third meeting is focused on reviewing and signing all documents and, lastly, transferring the client’s assets into a trust.
