What Is A Will?

You are probably familiar with the term last will and testament. Essentially, a will is a legal document that states how your final affairs debts are to be handled after your death. Probate is the process of giving your property away after you pass away.

A medical power of attorney outlines your desires regarding your healthcare decisions should you become incapacitated. Living wills help your family by setting out your wishes regarding tough end of life healthcare decisions if your brain has died and you are only being kept alive by medical support.

What Is A Trust?

Trusts create a fiduciary relationship in which you give another party, such as a family member, the authority to handle your assets if you become incapacitated or upon your death. Generally, revocable living trusts are preferred over wills because they help avoid a lengthy and expensive court supervised probate.

There are other types of trusts. Choosing the right one for you depends on your personal situation. Mark Brynteson will guide you through the entire process and help you decide what is best for you and your family.

Why Do I Need An Estate Planning Attorney?

Estate Plans include both wills and trusts which help protect your family in the event of your passing. People are always surprised how expensive the end of a person’s life can be. A good estate planning attorney will create a plan which makes sure your loved ones receive the full benefit of your estate at the lowest possible cost to you.

A common misconception is that only the wealthy need estate plans. Estates of any size benefit from an estate plan.

Fortunately, a good estate planning attorney will make sure the process is clear and simple, giving you peace of mind your loved ones will be taken care of after you’re gone.

Client Testimonials

I have known Mr. Brynteson for many years. I first met him in a social setting at a men's prayer group, then later had the privilege to use him professionally on several occasions. Mr. Brynteson has set up two non-profit corporations that I am a part of in record time. His competence, speed of action and knowledge in the area was astounding! I believe that Mr. Brynteson has the integrity that he would not take on any case in which he feels he could not do an exceptional job for his client. I certainly could recommend this gentlemen and am privileged to publicly give him a 5 star rating.

— Dr. Jacob Caraotta

When I finally called Mark Brynteson after being mired in a nasty situation for several months, Mark immediately took charge and directed every reponse on my part. He explained the problems clearly from a legal standpoint and also provided options when they were available. One day when I was quite sick and flat on my back, Mark called to follow up on a problem. When he finished, he said, "Today I'm not on the clock". Under the circumstances, that consideration was highly appreciated.

— Len Salvig
