Wills, Trusts And Estate Planning · Protection And Peace Of Mind

Estate planning is the process of developing a comprehensive plan for future scenarios, including the distribution of assets after death and decision-making in the event of an incapacitating illness or injury. Key goals of effective estate planning often include preventing disputes, reducing stress on surviving family members and minimizing tax exposure.

We help individuals and couples draft wills and powers of attorney to document their wishes, and we help clients achieve specific, diverse estate planning goals through carefully structured trusts and gifting strategies.

Our lawyers have extensive experience with estate planning for larger estates, as well as succession planning for family businesses and farms. We often work in conjunction with our clients' financial planners and accountants, as well as our own business law and family law attorneys, to help clients protect their interests. We also frequently assist clients with post-divorce estate planning.
