We have extensive experience drafting estate planning documents such as:

- Living wills (advance healthcare directives)
Our clients come from all walks of life, from retirees with large estates to younger individuals just starting to build their assets and make important plans for their families.
Without an estate plan in place, your assets could end up being distributed in a manner that is not to your liking. Furthermore, your loved ones could be exposed to liabilities and even contentious disputes. By putting these plans in place today, you can rest assured the future is secure for you and your loved ones.
Estate Administration Guidance
We administer estates of decedents from the probate of wills, the marshalling of the decedent’s assets, payment of his or her liabilities and distribution of assets to the intended beneficiaries. That includes, where appropriate, the preparation and filing of estate and inheritance taxes, both federal and state.
We also advise fiduciaries about their duties and obligations, in the administration of estates and trusts, and, where necessary, are prepared to litigate either on their behalf or for beneficiaries who may have valid grievances.
The Importance Of Tax Planning
Tax planning involves keeping our clients informed of the latest developments in state and federal taxation of estate, with a view of effecting the greatest possible savings of taxes on wealth transfers. Our lawyers provide knowledgeable tax planning guidance, with the goal of always sparing our clients and their loved ones unnecessary expense and liability.
