Nothing provides our clients with more peace of mind than a well-made estate plan. An estate plan allows you to clearly state your wishes for your own care known today, in case you are one day unable to do so yourself. It also provides for the transfer of your assets after your death.
A well-made estate plan allows you to provide for loved ones and remember friends and favorite charities while preserving assets and minimizing the tax burden on your heirs.
For a custom-crafted estate plan tailored to your individual needs, contact an estate planning lawyer at Ackerson & Yann today.
Estate planning and asset preservation are simply steps to ensure that hard-earned assets are protected and distributed to loved ones.
Depending on the size and composition of your estate, the Internal Revenue Service may take a large portion of your assets. With proper planning, estate and inheritance taxes can be minimized so your assets pass to your loved ones instead of being paid in taxes. Fortunately, it is not too late to write the IRS out of your will.
Our goal is to provide practical solutions that control the tax consequences for your family so we can preserve the bulk of your assets and insure they pass to your intended heirs. Our estate planning practice includes:
• Revocable and irrevocable trusts
• Life insurance trusts
• Educational trusts
• Spousal trusts
• Grantor trusts
• Special needs trusts
• Charitable remainder trusts
• Generation-skipping trusts
• Durable powers of attorney
• Advance medical directives
• Living wills
• Family limited partnerships
• Business succession planning
• Insurance planning
The goal of our estate planning practice is to provide practical solutions to estate planning issues, with a strong emphasis on the tax ramifications of structuring various estate plans.
Estate planning is constantly evolving and we strive to maintain a comprehensive knowledge of estate planning techniques and strategies that will minimize taxes and assure proper succession planning. Our estate planning attorneys also work closely with our business and commercial law attorneys in succession planning for our business clients.
