Estate planning is the process of establishing a Trust, Will, Durable Power of Attorney, and other related documents during your lifetime.
Regardless of the size of your estate, you and your heirs will benefit from a smart estate plan. Even with estates below tax thresholds, an estate plan can establish who will receive your assets after your death and who will be in charge of managing your estate. For larger or more complex estates, we will also discuss methods to preserve your assets for beneficiaries and minimize or postpone the amount of estate tax which otherwise might be payable at your death.
Probate is the legal proceeding supervised by the Superior Court used to transfer title to assets when a person is deceased. While we often find ways to avoid probate, our firm has a wealth of experience resolving complex Probate proceedings.
