A comprehensive estate plan does more than just pave the way for a smooth transition of wealth to your heirs. It helps you avoid problems that delay your loved ones’ ability to receive the benefits and protections they deserve.
The right time to develop an estate plan is well before you’re ready to make the transition from the workforce to retirement. To develop your estate plan, we draw on a wide variety of estate planning tools including wills, trusts, different forms of property ownership and insurance, all hand-picked to suit your unique situation.

- Discuss how to protect inheritances in the event that your heirs get divorced
- Make provisions for the care of a special needs child so that any inheritance he or she receives will not cause disqualification from public benefits
