Estate and Tax Planning

The firm assists and guides its clients in developing an estate plan that best suits their financial, tax, and family situations and then prepares all of the documents necessary to carry out the plan.  We have extensive expertise in establishing, funding, and administering estate and tax planning vehicles so our clients are able to pass on their wealth to their families in an efficient and confidential manner.  This also involves coordinating efforts with our clients to avoid probate court involvement. 

Our documents provide maximum flexibility to deal with changes in tax laws and family circumstances, which may or may not be foreseeable when signed.  The basic and complex estate planning devices we create include -


                                                   Revocable Living Trusts

                                          Durable General Powers of Attorney
