Asset Protection / Trusts and Estates / Estate Planning For Business Owners and Individuals

Many people find it difficult to plan for the inevitable. Others face challenges amongst family members, particularly where the largest asset is a family business. Yet others may believe that a will is unnecessary because their estate is too small for planning. Conversations about mortality and legacies can be hard-hitting and uncomfortable. If you have minor children and meager assets, a will is vital to ensure that those you designate care for your children.

Sometimes estate planning can be fun. Are you a lottery winner or have you recently inherited money or won money on a game show? Our attorneys will work with you to help stretch your money multi-generationally.

If you have a child with special needs or an ill family member, planning becomes urgent and immediate. Waiting too long can severely limit your family’s financial ability to provide the care needed. Look back periods often derail efforts. Our attorneys provide a compassionate ear and insightful options.

Planning for the future is necessary.
