A well-drafted Will is a key component of an effective estate plan. Among other things, a Will can be used to appoint a Personal Representative to administer your estate once you are gone. It can also be used to name the individual(s) you want to care for your children if you are no longer here.
A trust is a relationship wherein one party holds property on behalf of another party. There are different types of trusts which can be used depending on the need of the person creating it. Our firm will help you determine the type of trusts you need to accomplish your estate planning goals.
When someone passes away, their property goes through a legally mandated process referred to as “Probate” or “Estate Administration”. With large estates, this can be a complex and time consuming process. Should you find yourself appointed Personal Representative for an estate, our firm is here to help.
Asset protection is an estate planning tool through which assets are protected from creditor claims and possible litigation. Asset protection planning is most often used by persons with a high degree of professional liability.
When you have a loved one with special needs, you want to ensure that they will be cared for should something happen to you. Supplemental Needs Trusts (SNTs) are an effective choice to make certain your loved one is cared for in the way you wish even after you are gone.
Part of every well-thought out estate plan is a strategy for what will happen should you become unable to care for yourself and make your own decisions regarding your health care. It is a way of proactively making those decisions in advance in case the need ever arises.
Our firm provides comprehensive corporate and business representation, assisting our clients with everything from starting their own business, to purchasing or selling an existing business, and even ensuring proper succession of their current business.
It is not uncommon for disputes to arise when a loved one passes away. These situations are particularly difficult as they usually involve family members that disagree over matters ranging from the interpretation of the Will to the intent of the testator (person that created the Will).
