Estate Planning, Tax and Probate.

Estate planning ensures that your hard-earned assets are passed on in the manner that you feel is appropriate to the people that are important to you. Many tools can help you achieve this goal, allowing you to reserve funds for special purposes and preserve your wishes in healthcare directives and power of attorney.

There are many different forms of trusts, including revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, generation-skipping trusts, charitable foundation trusts, special needs trusts, Crummy trusts, and insurance trusts. Effective estate planning will also include charitable planning, directives for LLCs and partnerships, joint property ownership, and tax planning. In all of these areas and more, our reliable estate planning attorneys can guide you and create the documentation needed to ensure that your wishes are carried out.
