Our Estate Planning Practice

We work with individuals and families from all walks of life, from young couples just starting out to clients who have accumulated very large estates. We take a comprehensive approach to estate planning, taking the time upfront to gather information about your assets and estate planning goals.

Once we have a thorough understanding of your circumstances, we will carefully explain the different estate planning strategies to you, from the use of wills or trusts to the re-titling of assets to the advantages of lifetime gifts. When helping you determine which approach to take, we will examine the tax consequences of each strategy, as well as the administrative expenses of each approach, so that you maximize the amount of your estate that goes to your loved ones.

Once you have selected the approach that will best help you accomplish your goals, we will prepare all documents necessary to put your estate plan in place, including:

  • Wills
  • Trusts
  • Powers of attorney
  • Health care directives
  • Living wills

Our goal is to put a plan in place that is most efficient for you. If you don't need a complex trust arrangement, we won't recommend it. We understand that, for many people, estate planning is an unknown entity. We will take all the time necessary to help you understand the process, as well as the ways that the different estate planning tools work, so that you have the confidence that you are making the right decisions.
