Elements of Estate Planning
Wills and trusts are the core elements of the majority of estate plans. With a will, you can outline your wishes for the division of property after you pass away. With a trust, you can help your loved ones avoid probate and protect your assets before and after death.
There are many types of trusts available, and the trust that is right for you will depend on your specific situation. You can set up an irrevocable life insurance trust to protect your life insurance proceeds; you can create a trust to provide ongoing care and support for a child or loved one. You can also create trusts to maintain the confidentiality of your beneficiaries.
Trusts and wills are just a couple of the many estate planning options available to help you feel confident about the future. We have the ability to address all matters related to establishing a guardianship or taking other steps to protect a loved one. We are also familiar with complex tax issues that frequently arise. Our lawyers can meet your estate planning needs.
