Attorney Keith McManus is the founder and principal of McManus Estate Planning LLC, with offices in Plymouth and Hyannis, Massachusetts.
Attorney McManus has practiced estate planning law since 1996 and educates members of the public about transferring wealth to their heirs while avoiding the lengthy and potentially expensive probate process.
A 1993 graduate of Boston University, Attorney McManus earned his Juris Doctor from Case Western Reserve University and is well versed in both complex estates and those that are simple to plan. His practice helps clients avoid probate and litigation by creating and funding trusts, whose assets remain under the control of the person who owns the trust. Anyone can create and fund a trust: You don't have to be wealthy to take advantage of all a trust can do for your heirs.
While Wills are not uncommon, most of the clients at McManus Estate Planning use Trusts in their estate planning because they provide the types of flexibility and protection of assets that people want for their loved ones.
Regardless of what option you choose, we highly recommend you create an estate plan, particularly if you are married; married with children; single with children; or single with assets in your name. Not having an estate plan will mean that you will relinquish all control over your assets and what you leave behind to your loved ones.
McManus Estate Planning LLC recommends not only that you have an estate plan, but also that you review it every two years. Such life changes as a marriage, divorce, separation, birth or death of a child, purchase of property, or other changes in your assets should serve as an impetus to review your estate plan more frequently.
Our staff is available to answer any questions about your current estate plan or start the process of creating one for you. Please do not hesitate to contact us to see how we can assist you.
