Estate Planning Attorney In Phoenix Libby Banks Reveals The Outcomes Of Insufficient Estate Planning

Published January 3, 2024

Arizona estate planning attorney Libby Banks is helping individuals choose what happens to their estates after they have passed on with a comprehensive range of estate planning services.

Estate planning is often ignored by everyday Americans due to the assumption that it is only applicable to high-net-worth individuals who have significant assets. However, an estate refers to all of a person’s possessions, regardless of their total sum, including assets such as homes, cars, bank accounts, stocks and bonds, boats, jewelry, artwork, coin collections, and any other personal property. So, while individuals may not think of themselves as ideal candidates for availing estate planning services, the distribution of their assets after their death is a matter of concern that should be addressed as soon as possible.

“If you don’t have an estate plan in place,” says Libby Banks, “your family members may have to go through probate, a court proceeding filed after death to settle the estate of someone who only had a will or none at all. Moreover, not only is the will public but a list of assets and the appraised amount may also be filed. If maintaining your privacy and that of your heirs is important to you, then you want to avoid probate with a Revocable Living Trust. There are even more ways to make the process as smooth as possible for your heirs and secure their future. So, if you want to find out more, schedule a free consultation today and get started.”

The full range of estate planning services offered by the Law Office of Libby Banks includes estate planning, asset protection, last will and testament, revocable living trust, living will preparation, other trusts, and avoiding probate. Libby and her team also regularly host free in-person seminars to provide information about crucial topics related to her expertise such as busting the myths of estate planning.

Libby appeals to Arizona residents to consider looking into her firm’s estate planning services by saying, “In my early years as a litigation attorney, I found myself sorting out the inevitable family fallout caused by poor estate planning and improperly written wills and trusts. My clients turned to me to resolve disagreements with their loved ones, believing they were being cheated by their flesh and blood. I saw many families fall apart with family members vowing to never talk to each other again. I have seen the worst of it. I urge you to lay the plan in place while the time is right and ensure it doesn’t happen to those whom you value the most.”

Many Arizonians have thanked Libby Banks and her team for their support through the estate planning process that helped them ensure a smooth transition after their death and avoid probate. The estate planning attorney in Phoenix even boasts a near-flawless overall rating of 4.9 out of 5.0 on her Google Business Profile from nearly 20 reviews. Reviewers thank the firm for its helpful and knowledgeable staff, their attention to detail and responsiveness, and top-notch customer service.

One client writes, “Travis Meyers at the Law office of Libby Banks is amazing. When my husband lost his mom, we had to go through probate and Travis helped us every step of the way to understand the process and also to handle some estate issues that came up with the family. He helped us keep our cool and advised us how to handle everything. We HIGHLY recommend speaking with him for Estate planning. We will recommend him to everyone we know!”

Another reviewer says, “Wow! We moved here from CA and wanted to redo our living trust. Libby Banks and her team were incredible. Let's start with their responsiveness. It was immediate and they always set expectations in a timely way. I never had to follow up. They made a complicated process or maybe an intimidating process easier than it looks. They are organized and efficient. They also explained each piece with patience and care. They were a great match for us.”
