Reduce stress and worry for your loved ones
when they need it least.
Nadia Richards is an attorney with the Maryland State Bar, and is ready to help people with estate planning, probate, and trust and tax matters.
Why Estate Planning?
The law of estate succession is no respecter of persons whether your wealth is great or small. The law about what happens to your hard-earned assets applies to the rich and the not-at-all rich alike. Shouldn’t you know what that means for you and your loved ones?

Help with Special Needs Planning
The future care of your loved one with special needs is a significant concern for family members. Most important is protecting your loved one’s resources to meet their long-term needs.
When a family must settle the estate of a loved one who has died, this is called probate. If there was no Will, here in Maryland, the laws of intestacy dictate the outcome of the probate process. Whether there is a Will or not, this is a challenging time to take charge of a loved one’s affairs.
Everyone needs an Estate Plan, wealthy or not. If you own a house or a car, have a bank or investment account, you have assets. Assets comprise an Estate, and an Estate needs an Estate Plan. Your Estate Plan may include Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney or Living Wills.
Special Needs Planning
The future care of your loved one with special needs is a significant concern for family members. Most important is protecting your loved one’s resources to meet their long-term needs. Here in Maryland, there are a variety of approaches that can be implemented to ensure eligibility for government benefits even when your loved one has personal assets, income or inheritances. I will help you to explore the various possibilities and take advantage of them.
Although not initially obvious, what you intend to leave to your loved ones from your Estate could be substantially reduced because of a requirement to pay estate and/or income taxes. I will help you minimize income tax payments from year to year. I will help minimize taxes on your estate by developing the right Plan for you.
