Let's Talk and Find the Best Solution for You

Some clients are brought to tears as they begin to understand the benefits their estate planning provisions will provide to their children and grandchildren. One of the biggest misconceptions we encounter is the feeling that you don’t have enough of an estate to really “make a difference”, or that the most impactful estate planning strategies are too expensive. This couldn’t be further from the truth. It only takes a short conversation as we dream with clients and identify what holds the most value to them. This guides us to the most appropriate wealth transfer strategies based on their wishes.

Wealth transfer planning also involves strategically coordinating a number of areas within a client’s estate to help prevent unnecessary taxation and other inefficiencies, such as:

  • Funds to pay or replace estate taxes
  • Real estate & illiquid asset preservation
  • Asset protection
  • Charitable planning
  • ROA maximization
  • Multi-generational family wealth planning
  • Leverage of lifetime gift tax exemptions
  • Business succession or buyout planning
