Estate Planning Updates

Our goal is always to provide the appropriate legal instruments and take the steps necessary to ensure that those instruments are effective. Our clients often indicate that their greatest fear is leaving their families with expenses and headaches after their death. We help our clients understand the process fully so that they can be in a position to make good decisions in light of current federal and state law. We recommend that clients meet with us periodically and after any life event such as divorce, marriage, new children (adopted or conceived), or significant change in economic circumstances (inheritance, bankruptcy, etc.). This ensures that your plan will stay current with your situation.

Estate Planning Tools

We provide estate-planning services to individuals and families with average assets or substantial wealth. In either case, we have the resources needed to advise people about the best way to proceed to protect their assets, plan for long-term care, or care for their children or parents in the event of their death. Some of the tools we utilize to complete your estate plan include:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Living Wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Inheritance tax planning
  • Advance Health Care Directives

We will consult with a variety of professionals in complex or unusual matters, ensuring that any instruments we develop are appropriately drafted, taking into consideration all aspects of our clients financial and family circumstances. Always, we keep the goals of the client foremost in our minds throughout the process. Whether your goals are primarily avoidance of taxes, values-based planning or otherwise, you maintain ultimate control.
