Everyone Benefits From Estate Planning
Estate planning is for everyone who is interested in making a positive difference in the lives of their loved ones after they’re gone.
There is a mistaken yet common belief that estate planning is only for the wealthy. The reality is that every estate – large and small – can and should benefit from proper estate planning.
Estate planning is not just a set of documents. Proper estate planning involves working with a compassionate and highly trained and experienced estate planning attorney who will take the time to get to know you and your wishes through an organized planning process. Consulting with our skilled and knowledgeable team creates a strategy that is carefully crafted to the highest legal standards. With years of legal, tax, and financial experience, our estate planning attorneys translate your wishes and goals for the future into a structured estate plan that provides you peace of mind.
Estate planning in Chapel Hill, North Carolina can be a complex process, especially for those individuals and families with diverse assets or special needs to address. It involves assembling a complete understanding of your family, all of your assets and liabilities, and any particular estate planning concerns and objectives you may have. For instance, if you own properties in multiple states, we’ll need to address the laws of each state in which you own property. If your child has special needs, we can set up a trust for their benefit. We also recommend ways to avoid probate and local estate and inheritance taxes, if possible.
