Estates, Wills & Trusts Attorney - Nebraska

Experienced Estates, Wills & Trusts Attorney - Omaha & Lincoln 

Many people believe that only the wealthy do estate planning and establish trusts.  While most wealthy people do have trusts or other estate documents, trust or wills are indispensible to people of more moderate means.  Well-drafted instruments can preserve more of the estate and provide clear direction to the heirs. 

Estate Planning to Meet Each Individuals NeedsOmaha Estate Planning Attorney Doug Ruge on Facebook

We provide comprehensive estate planning information and services.  We develop packages of wills and trusts tailored to specific client needs and objectives.  For more information about setting up a trust and drafting a will, contact our office.  From our offices in Omaha, we serve all of the State of Nebraska. 

There is a trust instrument for almost any set of circumstances, whatever your need.  Revocable and irrevocable living trusts are the most common

These trusts, used with a pour-over will, preserve assets, protect homes from creditors, and prevent children from receiving benefits before they are ready.  A person with a fully integrated estate plan that includes these elements knows his or her passing will not be a cause of uncertainty and dispute for loved ones. 

Creating Wills To Help Care For Your Children

Wills are often used to name guardians for minor children.  Families with disabled children should also consider a special needs trust that will pay for the care the child will need throughout his or her lifetime.  Testamentary trusts, built into wills, are valuable in making sure children are cared for and your wishes carried out in the best interest of the children. 

Accompanying a will and trust are other estate planning documents such as living wills, health care powers of attorney, and HIPAA authorizations.  These documents work together to make your wishes about end-of-life care known.  They authorize another person to represent you in decisions about your medical care and to receive your medical records.

We can advise on all these matters.  I create combinations of wills and trusts focused on each client’s situation.  For more information on estates, wills and trusts, please contact our Omaha office.
