In doing so, we draw upon the entirety of the firm’s disciplines and coordinate with you and your advisers, including accounting, insurance, investment banking and trust professionals, to successfully address your unique and special needs.
An estate plan typically consists of a revocable family trust, wills, and durable powers of attorney for health care and financial management. Depending upon your specific need, additional elements may be needed such as business entities and/or insurance, charitable and other irrevocable trusts. We also handle probate matters, conservatorships, guardianships, and estate and trust administration.
Given the highly personal nature of estate planning, we focus on confidentiality, addressing your expressed needs while assisting with the identification and balancing of your short and long term objectives.
