Comprehensive Estate Planning Services

When it comes to estate planning, some attorneys try to fit every person's estate into a set of forms — a solution which fails to take into heart the intricacies of every family's needs. Good estate planning should to be tailored to meet the needs of each client. At Sheldon, Davis, Wells & Hockensmith, P.C., we give personalized estate planning services that ensure you and your family are prepared for the future, while minimizing any complications that may occur.

A comprehensive estate plan is more than just a will. We will advise you on practical aspects of estate planning that a will may not cover, such as titling of assets and accounts, and designating beneficiaries and survivors. We will also discuss long-range issues, such as payment of nursing home expenses, and mitigation of estate taxes. We will also discuss your plan for the care of your minor children.

While we do help our clients with drafting and executing wills, we encourage them to include other aspects of a good plan, including:

  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Medicaid planning
  • Special needs trusts
  • Federal estate tax planning
  • Guardianships and conservatorships

We offer a fresh approach and innovative solutions that will secure your most important assets with the least trouble for your family.

Taking The Burden Off Of Your Children

While drafting a will is a great first step to a smooth inheritance for your children, it shouldn't be the only step. We can help you examine your assets and find the most efficient way for your children to inherit the most, without having to owe the government too much tax money. We also help establish trusts and other tools to look out for the best interests of younger heirs who may not be prepared to receive your estate after your passing.

Our services are designed to make the estate planning process simpler and more tailored for every client. Our lawyers are trusted throughout New Hampshire, and can provide invaluable counsel suited for your needs.
