Benjamin Franklin said that nothing can be certain but death and taxes. Attorney Elgin deals with both. Everyone has an estate plan. If you have not taken the time to make yours, the state has a default plan for you that likely does not do exactly what you want it to do. The state’s default plan is structured for ease of administration, not for maximizing benefits to your heirs or minimizing tax burdens at death.
An experienced estate planning attorney can help you identify the right planning tool for your needs and implement a estate plan that fits your wishes and situation. This can be a simple will to a complex trust — the primary driving factors are your wishes for your assets at the time of death.
Attorney Elgin has helped many families develop comprehensive estate plans to meet their unique situations, including providing for adult children, individuals with disabilities, and providing for children from blended families.
