WILLS & ESTATES

 

Proper estate planning with legal counsel, financial advisors and certified accountants considers means of lessening tax liability.  Wills should be properly drafted and executed.  They should also be designed for contingencies that can happen to clients and their beneficiaries.  If clients have minors, they should consider addressing guardianship.


Due to people living longer, there is increased importance in having Powers of Attorney for Property and Powers of Attorney for Personal Care.  Elder abuse and fraud are disconcertingly common, so preparations should be made before lessened capacity or incapacity onset.
