Wills & Trusts
Estate planning involves more than just setting up Wills, revocable trusts, powers of attorney, and health care directives. For instance, you need to coordinate your assets with asset protection to ensure that your heirs will inherit what they are entitled to, and you want to minimize taxes and expenses.
Wills, revocable trusts (sometimes called “living trusts”), irrevocable trusts, powers of attorney, and health care directives are just the starting point for effective estate planning. Asset coordination is important too, as is asset protection. Many estates must be probated or require trust administration, and while there are often simple ways to avoid probate or trust administration, simple is not always best. Don’t forget taxes, both income and estate (death) taxes. Don’t worry, we have you covered. We have years of experience helping people just like you with estate planning matters.
We offer many document solutions to common estate planning concerns, a few of which are: probate avoidance, asset preservation, legacy planning, estate tax planning, privacy, and charitable giving. Initially, the focus should be on the goal and not on the means (the legal document). Who are you trying to benefit? What are you trying to achieve? When? Why? These questions are often more important than how (the document solution). The document solution could be a revocable (“living”) trust, an irrevocable trust (there are many different types of irrevocable trusts), a will, a transfer on death deed, a beneficiary designation, a combination of some or all of the above, and so on. We can help you identify your goals, which makes determining how to achieve much less complicated. We can help you organize your thoughts and help you put them into motion to achieve your estate planning goals. Get the facts and make an informed decision. At Brennan & Rogers, PLLC, we will take the time necessary to ensure that you make the right choice for you and one that makes economic sense too.
