Comprehensive Representation

The first step to updating your life insurance policy involves naming a new beneficiary. We will help you through this step and walk you through the process of working with the insurance company if there are any issues.

In addition to helping you through the process of updating your policy, our attorneys will also protect your interests as they pertain to your entire estate plan. In some cases, it will be necessary to update other estate planning instruments, as well. If your life insurance policy is mentioned in your will, in trusts or other documents, they will need to be updated as well.

Our experienced attorneys can look over your entire estate plan to make sure everything is aligned, working in concert and legally effective. With decades of legal experience, we know how to explore your estate plan for any inaccuracies or oversights that could hinder its effectiveness, and we will make sure your plan is solid.
