Family assets can be saved from taxes and the cost of nursing home care. Often, this can occur even after placement in a facility, but better results often occur when plans are made early. It is wise, however, to create a plan as early as possible. We do this every day at the office and you are invited to share in our knowledge and experience.
Family assets can grow and accumulate to a greater level than ever anticipated. Last Will and Testatments, Trusts, Powers of Attorney for Finance and Healthcare can be created and updated to ensure that the estate is distributed efficiently and wished, without unnecessary tax or delay. Other strategies such as the use of Gifting, the use of Limited Liability Companies (LLC's) and other permissible forms of protecting assets are also often employed.
PROBATE AND ESTATE ADMINISTRATION
Wills can be probated and assets distributed without unnecessary delay. Attention must be paid to taxes, creditors, sale of assets and payment of commissions. Sometimes, disagreements regarding an estate must be resolved in court. The law imposes many specific requirements on fiduciaries of estates, such as executors, and also upon the beneficiaries and it is better when administering an estate to get it right the first time than it is to be required to fix it later. We can help.
CARING FOR OTHERS
Children, parents and others with disabilities require special planning strategies to assure they can live comfortably and with dignity. Special Needs Trusts allow for added income while permitting continued government benefits. Powers of Attorney, Conservatorships, and Guardianships often allow for the control and management of others and their affairs when they can not do so for themselves.
REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS
buying and selling homes and businesses presents an array of legal considerations, commencing with negotiations, through contracting and closing of title. We work closely with our clients to assure they are being treated fairly, getting the deal for which they bargained and improving it where possible. Be it a sale or purchase, we can assist and guide, from start to finish
