Holistic Estate Planning: Protect Your Assets, Plan for Succession, and Ensure Disability Protection

Bregman Moodley Attorneys work with estate planning expert Dr Mervin Messias to devise a comprehensive estate plan that addresses all aspects of your life. Discover how a holistic estate plan can protect your assets, plan for succession, and ensure disability protection.

At Bregman Moodley Attorneys, we understand the importance of estate planning. That’s why we work closely with Dr Mervin Messias, an estate planning expert, to create a comprehensive estate plan that considers all aspects of your life.

A holistic estate plan must address three critical issues: asset protection, succession planning, and disability protection. By considering these factors, we can create a plan that ensures your loved ones are taken care of both before and after your death.

To achieve the desired outcome, a holistic estate plan establishes one or more discretionary living trusts. By setting up these trusts during your lifetime, we can address all concerns in the most appropriate manner.

The main focus of a holistic estate plan is to prioritize the following in this order:

  • Ensuring the well-being of you and your spouse.
  • Providing for your family.
  • Protecting your wealth.
  • Enhancing your wealth.
  • Saving taxes.

By prioritizing these factors, we can create a comprehensive estate plan that meets your needs and protects your assets. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you plan for the future.
