For adults at any stage of life, from young families to professionals to seniors nearing their retirement, estate planning is a critical step in preparing for the future. It provides the legal means for establishing your wishes for the future, protecting your assets and investments, mitigating tax liabilities, and planning for contingencies that could arise.
To be fully effective, your estate plan should address:
- Tax mitigation issues
- Asset protection goals
- Medi-Cal planning
- Probate avoidance
- Privacy concerns
- Health care and health-directive wishes
- Property distribution decisions
- Kids protection planning
- Legacy preservation planning
Not only should each document drafted be tailored to carefully fit your needs and goals for the future, these documents must be updated when the laws change and as your life and needs change. Our services include comprehensive attention towards:
- Wills and trusts
- Estate and gift taxes
- Tax planning
- Planning for non-U.S. citizens
- Family limited partnerships
- Grantor retained annuity trusts (GRAT)
- Qualified personal residence trusts
- Qualified terminal interest property (QTIP) trusts and other solutions for blended families
- Life insurance trusts
- Special needs trusts
- Durable powers of attorney
- Health care directives
