Estate Planning Lawyers
Estate planning attorneys help individuals and families make decisions about what should happen with their property and assets after death. Through the drafting of a trust, will and other legal document, an estate planning lawyer can help minimize the amount of the estate surrendered to taxes as well as ensure that the management and distribution of the estate is carried out according to your plans. If your family has minor children, an estate plan can designate the guardians that will care for the children and manage their inheritance until they reach the age of majority. Depending on the complexity of your individual situation, your estate planning team may include attorneys, financial planners, bankers and insurance professionals. Some states certify attorneys as estate planning specialists.
