Comprehensive Estate And Tax Planning
While a simple will can handle the necessities of some estates, the reality is that most people should have a more comprehensive estate plan in order to ensure that all of their needs are met and that their estate proceeds in an orderly fashion. We can examine your situation and discuss your goals with you to determine what elements need to be incorporated for an effective estate plan that will help you and your loved ones.
Some of the estate planning and elder law issues we assist people with include:
- Trusts (special needs trusts)
- Powers of attorney
- Advance directives/living wills
Probate And Estate Administration
For those who have the responsibility of shepherding a loved one’s estate through the probate process or who have to administer the estate, successful navigation often calls for the benefit of having experienced counsel that can guide you and help you make the right choices. We use our decades of experience to help you through those difficult processes.
A Focus On Tax Issues
One of the central issues that we can offer valuable assistance with is taxation. From building estate plans with an eye toward taxes to preparing and filing tax returns for trusts, we can help protect your estate from excess tax burdens.
One of the more important issues for many people is ensuring that they will be able to afford nursing home care. Nursing home care can quickly deplete even a reasonably substantial estate. We can take proactive steps that can protect your eligibility for Medicaid while preserving your assets.
