We treat our clients like family, and work closely with each person or couple to craft an estate plan that reflects their wishes and provides real peace of mind.

Our estate planning attorneys have helped hundreds of clients from simple estates to high-value, complex estates, and we can help you too.
Why You Need an Estate Plan: The Facts.
In Arizona, if you pass away without an estate plan or even a will, it is known as “intestate.” This situation essentially names the State of Arizona and the IRS as your estate planners. As with all governmental agencies, you can expect the process to be slow – and your assets subject to taxes as well as attorney and court fees that could have been avoided with an estate plan.

Why You Need an Estate Plan: The Facts.
Estate planning is for everyone, regardless of age or net worth. Failing to plan often costs much more than completing a quality estate plan. In Arizona, if you pass away without an estate plan the state and IRS determine how your assets will be distributed, essentially will acting as your estate planners. Typically, these processes take many months to complete, are expensive because your assets are subject to taxes as well as attorney and court fees (that could have been avoided with an estate plan) and put additional stress on grieving loved ones. Ultimately, without an estate plan, the state’s plan takes precedence over the wishes of the deceased, resulting in an expensive headache for those left behind.

What Will Your Legacy Be?
We believe an estate plan should be about more than avoiding taxes and probate. This process can be viewed as an opportunity to pass along family history or traditions through giving, as well as safeguarding assets. For example, estate plans can set parameters around how beneficiaries can use their inheritance, such as for college tuition, traveling, or other important values. Many clients chose to support causes that are personally meaningful to them by designated qualified charitable organizations in their estate plans. Giving thanks through estate planning is another way to preserve our clients’ legacies. Mazza Law is passionate about helping our clients protect their loved ones and instilling peace of mind.
We have adapted our estate planning process to a virtual one, offering virtual consultations via FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, etc. While we may not see our clients in person during this time, we deliver the same award-winning services digitally.
Additionally, we are offering medical professionals discounted rates on their estate plans to thank them for the sacrifices they are making on the front lines of this pandemic. Mazza Law is grateful to you and the important and altruistic work you do!
