Effective estate planning is neither a simple one-time event, nor an onerous, endless task. Nor is it restricted to individuals of a specific age, profession, income or asset base.
We view estate planning as an ongoing process that comes into play at natural stages of professional and personal life. We work with clients to clarify their own unique circumstances, goals and requirements, and help set a financial and legal course that enables individuals and families to more effectively direct their own futures.
Planning to support the lifestyle you have today and the one you envision for the future requires a comprehensive understanding of your goals, asset and liability structure, and potential cash flow. It also requires a strategic appreciation of the tax implications your decisions may have.
