What is estate planning and why is it important for you?

Estate taxes, probate proceedings, expenses, delays... Proper estate planning enables you to minimize or avoid all of these, and to have your assets promptly and efficiently distributed according to your wishes. At our law offices, we help clients minimize the effects of a costly and time-consuming probate process, reduce the amount of estate taxes they need to pay, and draw up instruments that will speed up and ease the distribution and disposition of their assets. More specifically, a well-prepared estate plan can help our clients achieve the following:

  • Reduce taxes on your estate
  • Minimize expenses
  • Choose executors/trustees for your estate
  • Provide for your immediate family
  • Get your property to beneficiaries quickly
  • Provide for other relatives who need help and guidance
  • Plan for your incapacity
  • Ease the strain on your family
  • Make sure your business continues to run smoothly
  • Help a favorite cause

Our wills, trusts, and estate planning practice includes services related to wills (simple and complex), trusts (revocable and irrevocable), conservatorships, guardianships, testamentary trusts for minors or for estate planning, living trusts for estate planning, durable powers of attorney for health or financial, health care proxies, living wills, and health care directives.
