Estate Planning Services
Thoughts of estate planning often bring more questions than answers: Should the inheritance be given at a certain age? Is the intended beneficiary in a shaky marriage with divorce as a possibility? Are there children from a previous marriage? Should inheritance be protected from potential creditors of the heir? Are there taxes that can be avoided? Are you able to avoid the probate court rules, delays, and costs?
It is never too early to begin estate planning. In all cases, high quality estate planning will save your family time, heartache, and money.
Each estate planning scenario is different. In order to help you, we want to know you, your unique situation, and the nature of your relationships. We discuss all of these, providing useful research tools and making recommendations to make your plan simple and efficient, assisting you through every step of the process.
Our Estate Planning Services are designed to help you:
- Clearly define your estate planning goals.
- Select your estate planning partners.
