Estate Planning Attorneys
Whether your estate is large or small, an effective estate plan can provide significant benefit to you and your heirs. Well-drafted estate planning documents that clearly identify the distribution of your assets can eliminate confusion, anxiety and conflict among your loved ones when it comes time to divide property. An effective estate plan can also minimize the tax consequences, ensuring that your descendants get the maximum benefit from your estate.
When you hire us to assist you with the preparation and implementation of an estate plan, we will start by learning as much as we can about your assets, liabilities and objectives. Next, we will help you understand the different strategies for accomplishing your goals, including the use of wills and trusts, the re-titling of assets to avoid probate, and the lifetime gifting of assets. Once you have determined the approach that is best for you, we will draft the documents necessary to implement your plan, including wills, simple and complex trusts, powers of attorney and medical directives.
