Estate Planning

Our estate planning department is led by Jennifer Peck, who is a certified specialist in estate planning, trusts and probate law. Under her guidance, we prepare estate plans of all types and sizes to meet the individual needs of each client.

Our estate planning services include:

  • Asset protection : With a trust or an LLC, we can ensure that assets do not disappear due to divorce, bankruptcy or lawsuits.
  • Special needs planning : We work with parents and other family members who are worried about the future life and well-being of a disabled child.
  • Wills : Every adult should have a will describing where they want their assets to go — do you?
  • Trusts : We can help you choose a trust that meets your specific needs, including safe trusts (bloodline trusts) and estate tax savings trusts.
  • Power of Attorney/guardianship : Who will take care of your affairs if you become incapacitated? A Power of Attorney is a necessary estate planning document.
  • Probate, trusts and estate administration : We help families administer an estate and distribute assets to beneficiaries with efficiency and skill.
  • Estate tax planning : Take steps now to reduce the amount of tax your heirs will pay.
  • Gifting assets : Reduce estate taxes and preserve assets for Medicaid planning by giving assets to your heirs now.
