Estate Planning Attorney
Planning for the future of your family, or facing the difficult task of administering or probating a loved one’s estate, can be intimidating. Estate planning and administration is often associated with emotional influences and the individual dynamics within a family. These matters should not be taken lightly. A knowledgeable attorney can help guide you toward solutions and decisions that best fit your circumstances. I formed the law office of Ketlinski Law Office, PLLC, to provide individuals and families with a high-quality resource to navigate these highly personal areas of law. My goal is always to guide clients toward solutions and decisions that best fit their unique circumstances. I represent individuals, personal representatives, executors and beneficiaries in all aspects of estate planning and probate law throughout Ada County and surrounding areas, including Meridian and Boise, Idaho.
My professional background is diverse. I now focus primarily on estate planning and probate matters to provide clients with goal-oriented and knowledgeable guidance in these vital areas of law. You will work one-on-one with a lawyer who will fully explain your legal options to allow you to make the decisions that are right for you. No two family structures are identical. That means that creating an estate plan that fits requires a detailed analysis to avoid unintended consequences. I take the time to get to know clients in order to craft tailored strategies that no fill-in-the-blank form can match. A solid plan, written in clear terms, can give you the peace of mind that your wishes will be understood — which significantly reduces the risk of future family conflict when emotions run high.

Estate planning is one of the most important things you need to do as an adult especially if you have children. Planning for disability or death is not a fun topic but it is essential to ensure your assets are protected. Getting these matters in order helps to save your family expense, frustration and time in the event that you pass away or are disabled. Estate planning with the use of wills and trusts helps your family avoid probate, plans for minor children, helps plan for death tax on assets and can incorporate planned charitable donations.
Having an estate plan is very smart. Unfortunately, estate administration can be very complex and the people you have designated must have competent counsel to guide them through the process. They must make important decisions under stress and they need help to make them wisely. They will likely need to prepare inventories of your property, prepare tax returns, or sign other very important documents on your behalf. They must divide and distribute your property to those individuals or charities you identified in your will or trust agreement.
Elder law is an area of law that protects the elderly, disabled and special needs people. Elder law covers a variety of areas including Medicaid benefits, VA benefits, life care planning, estate planning and trusts, conservators and probate law. Special needs trusts are also part of elder law and involves structuring the trust accounts to ensure the maximum benefits for your loved one. Our counsel can guide you and your loved ones to make the best choices financially.
