Wills, Living Trusts & Estates

An Estate Plan is more than a set of documents. It is a way of preserving your lifestyle for you and your family. No two estate plans are alike, just as no two families are alike. We take the time to understand your individual circumstances and financial objectives, so that each of our plans is unique to your family’s circumstances.

Without proper planning, the government may take over half of your estate upon death. By taking advantage of tax strategies, you can maximize your estate growth, secure your future, and the future of those most important to you.

With our planning strategies, we will introduce you to time tested strategies with which you can:

  • Transfer assets in accordance with your wishes
  • Maintain control over your assets
  • Retain complete financial security
  • Ensure privacy of your financial affairs
  • Forecast and plan for your future estate
  • Minimize exposure to estate taxes
  • Ensure the well-being of your heirs
  • Enjoy an expanded philanthropic role
  • Leave a legacy

We help you preserve, protect, empower, and perpetuate your assets for the benefit of future generations.

Successful estate planning is achieved when one is secure in the knowledge that upon one’s passing, the client’s assets are protected, and subsequent transfer of those estate assets to his beneficiaries will be a seamless and cost-effective measure.
