Estate Planning | Business Succession Planning | Trusts And Probate

One of the most considerate actions you can take on behalf of your family and friends is to establish an appropriate estate plan. A simple plan for an individual with few assets may include a will, a living will (advance medical directive) and powers of attorney. Those instruments provide direction for the probate court and your medical providers in the event of your death or incapacitation. More complex estate plans may involve the establishment of an irrevocable or revocable trust, a family limited partnership (FLP), and other devices to minimize tax liability and the cost of probate. If you are a part or whole owner of a business, your business planning should include a succession plan that outlines a smooth transition of ownership. I also represent clients in civil litigation when a will or trust is contested.
