Our Estate Planning Practice
When you hire us to help you develop and implement an effective estate plan, we will start the process by learning as much as we can about your financial situation, as well as your goals. We will carefully explain the different strategies available to help you meet your objectives, including the use of wills or trusts, the re-titling of assets to avoid probate, and lifetime gifts. When working with you to determine the best estate planning strategy, we will always pay attention to the tax implications of your different options.
When you have decided which approach will best meet your needs, we will prepare and execute all the necessary documentation to put your estate plan in place, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney and advance health care directives.
We work with executors, administrators, personal representatives and trustees, helping you meet the requirements of the probate process so that you can settle the estate of a loved one; or we can assist you in the distribution of assets from a trust.
If you have minor children, we can help you take the measures necessary to identify a caretaker should you die unexpectedly or prematurely. We can help you establish a conservatorship through your will or through a trust.
