Estate Planning and Administration

Planning an Estate can be hard. There are a lot of things to consider. In addition to asset distribution and to deciding on who will be your executor, you will want to think about how easy you want to make it for your loved ones to distribute your assets equitably, how much control you wish to have after distribution (which may be required in case of bequests to minors and in other cases), how to maximize tax benefits, how to minimize assets going through probate, and what estate instruments - such as a will or trust - will do the majority of the distributions in your particular scenario. You want an attorney who understands estate planning and administration, so that he or she can best assist you finding what works for you.
