Look Beyond A Will When Planning Your Estate

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:

Taking The Burden Off 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.
