The Cohesive Plans To Protect Your Legacy
In our estate planning lawyers’ considerable time in practice, they have created tailored documents for clients from a range of diverse backgrounds. In particular, they serve business owners and people who own complex assets such as stock options. They create seamless and legally sound estate plans designed to pass on your legacy. Just a few of the tools they implement include:
- Last will and testament: The will is the foundation of your estate plan and outlines how your remaining assets will be distributed to your heirs. We will take the time to understand your wishes and develop a personalized will that protects your wishes and prepares your family. If you are involved in a will contest, our highly skilled litigation attorneys will work with you to take a strong position in court.
- Charitable contributions: In addition to wills, trusts and other important estate planning documents, some individuals want to include philanthropic pursuits within their estate plan. Our lawyers can help you make direct charitable gifts, create a charitable trust or establish a foundation that benefits the important nonprofits in your life.
- Irrevocable and revocable trusts: There are a wide range of trusts, each with its own unique purpose that allows people to exert more control over their assets after they die. Within those dozens are two primary types of trusts – irrevocable and revocable:
- Irrevocable trusts cannot be modified, and you cannot remove assets that you place in the trust. Individuals use these trusts because of asset protection from potential estate taxes and creditors.
- Revocable trusts are more flexible and allow you to make changes to the trust throughout your life. Assets in revocable trusts are generally able to avoid probate.
There is no single trust that is good for everyone. Each individual may or may not need a trust, depending on their objectives and assets. We will thoroughly analyze your complete situation to determine which trusts are appropriate for you and implement them within your total estate plan.
