I am attorney D. Christopher Alfonso and I have dedicated my law career to crafting estate plans that ensure my clients’ families are protected and that their assets are distributed according to their wishes. I believe everyone benefits from a comprehensive estate plan. It is never too early or too late to get your estate in order.
Why Estate Planning Matters
Just as it’s never too early or too late to craft an estate plan, you don’t need to cross a monetary threshold before considering estate planning either. I help individuals with substantial wealth craft custom solutions to their complex needs. I also work with clients whose estate planning goals are more straightforward.
Not only does an estate plan protect your assets, but, in the event you become incapacitated, it safeguards you as well. People put off estate planning for many reasons: They don’t think they have enough assets to make it necessary, they figure they have plenty of time or they simply don’t like thinking about end-of-life issues. The truth is, the sooner you have an estate plan in place, the sooner you can stop thinking about it.

Is An Estate Plan Different Than A Will?
A will is certainly a component of most estate plans, but there is much more that goes into a comprehensive plan. Depending on your situation, that can also include a trust, power of attorney and healthcare directives.
All of these documents come together to ensure that your loved ones will be provided for and that your wishes regarding distribution of your assets will be followed. I put my experience to work to help you protect the wealth you have worked so hard for. I also represent clients in probate proceedings and guardianship matters.
