Estate Planning PDF Print E-mail

The depth of the relationship between an attorney and his or her client is a substantial factor when it comes to effective estate planning.  The client must have absolute trust in their attorney, being careful to tell the attorney everything that may affect that person’s assets, liabilities and interested persons.

Without that implicit trust and total disclosure, the estate plan put into place can fail in providing protection and security to survivors.  In the absence of proper planning, tax liabilities may increase, additional administrative fees may be encountered, and beneficiaries may be left in limbo longer than necessary. 

It is situations like this that can be avoided with proper planning and complete confidence in us.  We work hard to earn your trust and provide our clients and their families with competent estate planning.
