Do I Need an Estate Plan?
Estate planning allows you to maintain some control over your assets after you pass or become incapacitated. Without a thorough estate plan, your already-grieving loved ones may be left with tasks and decisions they are unsure of, or even restricted from completing on their own.
Drafting an estate plan with one of our attorneys provides you with a personalized approach based on your overall situation. By securing a thorough plan together, we can help you divide your assets and establish powers of attorney in a manner you deem appropriate.
When Should I Start Thinking About Estate Planning?
It’s never too soon to start planning for you and your family’s future. By completing a comprehensive estate plan, you can be assured that you, your loved ones, and your possessions are all handled as you see fit when you’re no longer here to take care of them yourself.
Estate plans can be modified as you age to address your current situation. As your family and assets grow, you can adjust your plan accordingly. For this reason, there truly is no time too early to make an estate plan. Once started, continue to review it during different life milestones, such as:
- Getting married
- Purchasing property
- Having a child
- Nearing retirement
- Exploring long-term care solutions
Estate plans can protect you and your family in the case of an unexpected tragedy. By reviewing it after major milestones in your life, you can offer the best protection to your loved ones.
What Documents Are in an Estate Plan?
When drafting your estate plan, there are a handful of common documents that frequently come up. While not all of them may apply to you, it’s worth being cognizant of them should your situation change. These documents include:
- Last will and testament – to arrange for your children and pets, as well as possessions
- Revocable living trust – to redistribute your property now or upon death
- Beneficiary designation – to assign someone to inherit your life insurance, bank account and retirement plan
- Power of attorney – to appoint someone to act on your behalf in financial and legal affairs
- Health care power of attorney – to appoint someone to act on your behalf in medical situations
- Provision for digital assets – to distribute your hard drive and virtual content
- Letter of intent – to document final wishes or requests for burial
- List of important documents – to provide your family with information on how and where to find your legal and financial documents
Our knowledgeable lawyers at HKH Elder Law are well-versed in the process and ready to assist you as you prepare an estate plan.

As a family member who has provided support for seven family members as they moved through the continuum of being healthy and independent to requiring end-of-life care, I can heartily recommend the Hill and Kinsella Law Firm. I was referred to April Hill by my own stellar estate planning attorney when I needed assistance with my parents in the Tampa Bay area. I couldn't be more pleased with the entire process for creating updated documents to the execution of those documents to follow-up counsel in applying the documents. If you are considering an attorney/firm to help you with this part of your life or are a family member who needs guidance, call Hill and Kinsella. They will make things clear and simple for you.- Tracy S.
April rescued me with helping my mother transition into an assisted living facility plus deal with an unruly family member. April's knowledge, professionalism along with her warm and caring understanding of the emotions involved in trying to do the very best for my mother was exemplary! My family and I will forever be grateful to April! My husband and I have done our will through April and we always recommend her to friends and family. God bless you and your very capable staff!- Patricia C.
Over the years Hill & Kinsella have professionally assisted with my legal needs and I would recommend their firm for the best Elder Law professional service in Pinellas County.- Michael C.
Thanks to April Hill, my sisters and I were able to better take care of Mom and when she passed, handle her affairs more easily. Now that it was time for me to revise my will, I came to April. She has well-advised me and I am grateful for her knowledge and help for my future. When the time comes that my family has to deal with my estate, their work will be easier for this planning. Having settled estates for two of my relatives myself, I can provide my loved ones with an easier time taking care of things when I am gone. Thanks, April for your help!- Ginger P.
April and her team were asked to take over my mother's estate as my previous attorney was unable to finish. April & Team were wonderful. This was not a run of the mill probate. There were several issues left hanging by my previous attorney and April cleared everything up quickly. Hill & Kinsella is a great law firm. I'm so grateful our paths crossed.- Former Client
