Creating an estate plan is one of the most important steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones. Our highly qualified attorneys will help create an estate plan that is unique to your needs and goals. A simple estate plan may consist of a Will, Advance Health Care Directive, and medical and financial Powers of Attorney. More complex planning techniques include revocable and irrevocable Trusts, lifetime giving programs, and business succession planning.
Careful planning can maximize the assets that are available for distribution upon your death by minimizing tax liability, both at the state and federal level. It can also provide peace of mind by addressing issues such as support for dependents with special needs and guardianships for minors.
If adequate planning has not been done, the results can often be costly and time-consuming. If powers of attorney are not in place, a court-appointed guardian may become necessary to manage your affairs in the event that you are unable to do so.
We want to ensure that the necessary provisions are made to protect you loved ones and your assets, so call our office at (302) 239-3700 to arrange your initial estate planning consultation with one of our experienced attorneys.
