What is Estate Planning?

Estate Planning is the creation of a written plan
for managing and safeguarding your wealth while you are alive and eventually distributing as much
as possible to those you care about at death. It forces each of us to face the financial and
emotional consequences of disability, death, and taxes, and requires positive action to minimize
the effects on those we care about.
An Effective Estate Plan Must Address 5 Important Areas:

1. Control of your medical care if you are unable to communicate

2. Management of your affairs in the event you suffer a serious
disability

3. Avoiding the loss of your assets due to long-term
illness

4. The orderly distribution of your assets at death

5. At the time of death, the reduction or elimination of Income
Taxes, Capital Gains Taxes and, for some, Estate Taxes.

Ones.

Our Clients

Our clients come from all walks of life and range in age from
their early twenties to their late nineties. Some have modest estates and others have very large estates. Our
clients are single, married, and sometimes divorced. Many have children, others do
not.

The one thing they all have in common is a desire to protect
their loved ones. They want to ensure that in the event of serious illness, and at the time of death, there will
be a plan in place to make things as easy as possible and avoid the loss of assets that were built over a life
time.
