Estate Planning for Businesses
In addition to serving business owners in their everyday business transactions and litigation needs, we also help owners of family businesses to plan for business succession. When you have spent your life building a successful business, you want to know that your company will be in the capable hands of those you have specifically chosen to continue your company when you retire or pass on.
Personal Estate Planning
If you have children for whom you want to provide care, or if you want to make sure that a special possession goes to a particular relative or child, then estate planning provides the legal way to convey your personal wishes and intentions.
After talking with us about your personal assets and your goals, we can explain your estate planning options and make recommendations based on your specific objectives. We will fully describe the benefits and potential risks of all types of estate planning tools and documents, including:
- Wills, including simple wills, to pass on your assets to your designated beneficiaries
- Trusts, including special needs trusts, to provide for your children's futures
- Living wills and health care proxies to ensure your wishes are followed in the event of your incapacity
- Powers of attorney to give decision-making authority to a person of your choosing, either for your health care or finances
- Guardianships or conservatorships to designate a caretaker for minor children or dependent adults
Estate planning often involves more than just a simple will to ensure that a family treasure will pass to a specific family member. To learn more about estate planning and how it can help you plan for the end of your life, your health care, and your children's futures, we are happy to meet with you and discuss your options.
