What Can a Comprehensive Estate Plan Do for Me and My Family?
Estate planning topics can be unpleasant for people to talk about with their families. Taking the steps now, however, to establish wills and trusts, powers of attorney, health care directives and more can ultimately save you and your loved ones stress later on.
Online or do-it-yourself wills and trusts rarely provide the kind of customized service our clients need. At the Law Offices Of Mark Wm. Hofgard, Esq., we take pride in providing individuals and their families the peace of mind that comes with knowing their estate was handled professionally and comprehensively.
Our firm offers more than 35 years of experience in a wide range of legal matters, including estate planning and the legal issues that intersect with estates. We look at cases from every angle to ensure asset preservation, responsible estate gift transfer and dispute prevention.
With offices in Phoenix West Valley, Goodyear, Goodyear, AZ and Boulder, Colorado, we make ourselves conveniently accessible to clients throughout Arizona and Colorado. Contact us today to arrange a consultation and learn more about your options.
More than Just a Will
Planning for the future is about more than just determining who in your family receives what assets. It is about making life easier for your loved ones when they are facing difficult decisions about your health, your finances or your final affairs. It is about ensuring your hard-earned wealth and assets are protected and responsibly distributed according to your wishes and in your family's best interests.
We can help you consider issues that can be easily overlooked in an estate plan. For example, how can your assets be used to provide you with income without disqualifying you for benefits like Medicare or Medicaid? How can disputes between heirs and beneficiaries be prevented?
Get the Personal Service You Need
We take the time to work with our clients one-on-one through every stage of the estate planning process. That personal service means a great deal to our clients, and helps set them up for a secure future.
I am writing this review for Michelle.When I spoke with a young lady by the name Michelle, I was impressed! She was very nice, polite, and helpful. She allowed me to explain everything easily. Took my message down and promptly got me in touch w/ an Attorney. Thank You for all your help Michelle.

I had a complicated situation; an ex spouse living in a different country and I had filed for bankruptcy few years back.
I was receiving many letters from different lawyers and agencies that help collect excess proceeds on my foreclosed house, few of the companies I got letters from were newer or had little experience in excess proceeds. I also talked to several lawyers prior to Mark, and they made it seem it would very hard for me to collect the funds due to my situation. I gave up on trying to collect the funds.
Months later I decided to give it one more try. A family member sent me Mark’s information. Since the first day I called, everything was efficient and communication was always very clear.
Mark was amazing; he knew exactly what to do and how to proceed in claiming the funds. He was responsive, honest, always positive, very knowlageble and very fair. He got me more than I was expecting and made the expecience very easy and comfortable. I would recommend him to everyone! It was such a pleasure to work with him.
