Everyone Already Has An Estate Plan

This may be a surprise but no one needs to create their own documents to have an estate plan. Your state of residence already has one set up for you! That is why we discuss these sensitive issues with our clients. Many people believe that after working so hard for their money they should determine how assets should be distributed at death. Having a customized plan in place may also reduce probate costs, estate taxes and family friction. Once you determine your goals, we work closely with local attorneys and national law firms who can draft your documents.
