The goal of our estate planning, trust and probate practice is to provide a comprehensive and precise estate plan tailored to each client's individual needs and desires. Quality estate planning dictates that we arrange the client's assets, both before and after death, in a way that maximizes specific family objectives by considering various contingencies and minimizing taxes. The range of options and the variety of possible assets, combined with different personal objectives and the intricacies of fiduciary and tax laws, require careful planning to maximize the benefit from this complex and highly individualized process.
Our estate planning process will involve careful review and analysis of existing documents; preparation, review, and revision of different proposals for consideration; and summaries outlining the distribution patterns and tax consequences of each proposal. This process, of course, will include meetings with the client and possibly the client's other advisors to ascertain specific objectives and may involve specialized research on relevant issues affecting the client's particular circumstances.
