Thoughtful estate planning includes addressing a variety of issues, including financial and health care responsibilities, guardianship over children and loved ones who have disabilities, taxation, and asset protection. Most estate plans designate who will be responsible for making decisions about these issues along with documents granting the authority to do so: durable powers of attorney and healthcare directives.

The foundation of your estate plan, however, is the establishment of effective wills and trusts:

  • Wills — Depending on your needs, we can develop simple or complex wills to designate the beneficiaries of any personal property, guardianship you're your children, and your funeral preferences, as well as specifying who will be the executor of your estate.
  • Trusts — Assigning property to a trust can serve a number of purposes, but one primary function is to exclude that property the costly and time-consuming succession (probate) process and limit its exposure to estate taxation.
  • Specialized trusts — We prepare both revocable and irrevocable trusts that help our clients reach a variety of goals. We assist with living trusts, special needs trusts, irrevocable life insurance trusts, charitable trusts, charitable remainder trusts, honorary trusts, generation-skipping trusts and others.
