The best way to ensure that the right person receives your property after your death is through the making of a Will. A second important benefit to having a Will is that your heirs will not have to second-guess what you truly wanted done with your estate. A properly drafted and executed estate plan can also save your family significant estate taxes. We also engage in estate planning for family businesses who intend to pass ownership of the family business from one generation to another. In formulating estate plans for our clients, we consider the best manner in which to own property and how best to lessen or avoid estate taxes while accomplishing your testamentary needs. We advise our clients on the benefits and advantages of owning properties in trust or otherwise. We also assist our clients through the drafting of health care proxies, living wills, and durable powers of attorney.
