Learn more about the Estate Planning process.
Probate & Estate Administration
Probate and estate administration are the processes through which estate assets are transferred after death. Assets to be transferred under terms of a will go through probate. Assets transferred outside of a will, such as by operation of law, or those planned for in a trust are handled through an Administration process. Administration also refers to the process whereby assets are transferred by rules of the state when there is no will. We can help make the process easier, more efficient, and provide peace of mind during a difficult time.

Estate Tax Planning
Historically speaking, the federal estate tax is an excise tax levied on the transfer of a person's assets after death. In actuality, it is neither a death tax nor an inheritance tax, but more accurately a transfer tax. There are three distinct aspects to federal estate taxes that comprise what is called the Unified Transfer Tax: Estate Taxes, Gift Taxes, and Generation- Skipping Transfer Taxes. Legal planning to avoid or minimize federal estate taxes is both a prudent and an important aspect of comprehensive estate planning.

Planning For Minor Children
Children are a family's greatest treasure. Think of all the precautions taken to safeguard young children — from the first purchase of an infant car seat to the compulsory swimming lessons and even driver's safety instruction. Yet, most parents leave their children completely unprotected from one of life's most crushing blows — being orphaned upon the loss of their parents.
