Estate planning may provide significant tax savings opportunities, thus increasing the assets which will ultimately benefit your family. Our tax attorneys are experienced in deferring, minimizing and often eliminating estate taxes completely. We can provide assurances that the eventual transfers to your children and grandchildren will be structured and secure, including situations where your beneficiaries are minors, have developmental issues, creditor concerns, difficulties managing money, or may be subject to the influence of others. Our experience in these extremely sensitive family situations will ensure that your goals are achieved and your assets are available for only your chosen beneficiaries.
