Estate planning is essentially your succession plan regarding all your assets. Who or what will take over your assets after you pass away? In what manner will they receive those assets, and how much control and discretion will they have after the fact? What can you do today to reduce potential estate tax, creditor & liability exposure in order to protect yourself and your legacy? Optimal estate planning addresses these questions well in advance of the circumstances that will render their consideration necessary. A well thought out and organized plan can reduce legal costs, tax expense and family stress during the estate administration process.
