The goal of estate planning is to make sure that your property passes to your loved ones according to your desires and in a way that minimizes tax consequences. A properly planned and funded estate can avoid probate and help your estate pass seamlessly, without court involvement and without confusion and uncertainty amongst heirs. Everyone agrees that estate planning is an important thing to do but it is often something that people put off doing until it is too late. Some hesitate because it is difficult to confront the possibility of death, others are overwhelmed by the complexity of the process. The process should not be complex. Our attorneys can guide you through the process of planning your estate in a way that fits your individual needs. We have experience assisting clients in making these important preparations and decisions.
