Probate & Estate Planning


Estate planning involves managing your assets so they will be distributed consistent with your wishes after your death. These assets may be owned by you alone or jointly with others, such as your spouse. An estate plan should consider all assets owned by the client, including, but not limited to, real property, business interests, investments, insurance proceeds, personal property, and even your personal effects. Estate planning generally is accomplished through a variety of methods, which may include one or more of the following:

While some people do not do enough estate planning, others tend to over-plan. A properly-coordinated estate plan will be no more than you need to achieve an orderly transition of your estate assets to those persons you want to receive them, while minimizing inheritance taxes. Please contact me to schedule a consultation, regardless of whether you are just beginning your estate plan or if you have already started one, but want to refine or improve it.
