Estate Planning, Wills & Trusts 

Estate planning is the key to a successful transition when you pass away. The drafting of a will and trust, and other estate planning documents, is critical to protect your family, your family’s wealth and create an orderly and tax-efficient distribution of your assets upon your passing. While no one wants to think about one’s mortality, creating a comprehensive estate plan during your lifetime can be a thoughtful strategy that your future generations will be thankful for. Through thoughtful and careful estate planning the care, custody, and financial security of your minor children can be provided for, any unique circumstances that you are concerned about after your death can become a part of your estate plan, as well as providing for any gifts or charitable bequests. Estate planning is exactly what it is meant to be, the law provides you with a final opportunity to provide some structure and detail to your estate, expressing your instructions on how certain matters should be handled after your death. It is an opportunity that should not be missed, as these decisions can go to the very fabric of your family life and how your family will continue after your passing. Having an estate planning lawyer that can guide you through this process can provide you with the peace of mind that your family and its assets are protected.
