ESTATE PLANNING

Why pay unnecessary income and estate taxes and probate costs if they can be avoided through proper planning.  If you don’t have an estate plan in place, the state has made one for you. Make sure your assets go to your intended beneficiaries.   Do not make the assumption that if you have a will, you have an effective estate plan. 

A will does not alleviate the need for a guardian and will require probate upon your death.

If you become unable to take care of yourself or your assets, your will can name the guardian, but it does not alleviate the court-supervised guardianship proceeding.

Upon your death, probate proceedings are required to transfer those of your assets which do not pass directly by law or contract.

Court costs, executors' commissions, and attorneys' fees can consume five to seven percent of an estate, and even an uncontested probate takes about six months to complete

Avoid depletion of assets from probate costs.  Maximize wealth transfers during life and at death.  Whether you are seniors, single, a single parent, married, divorced, land owner, business owner, farmer, or doctor, I can counsel you on the proper strategies to meet your unique estate planning goals.  I can simplify the estate planning process and make sure you avoid the pitfalls of drafting your own plan

Whether you have a net worth of $100,000 or several million dollars, choosing an experienced estate tax lawyer is important.
