Today’s estate plans are much more complicated than a simple will, although that can be an important component. Your estate plan must address important financial, business, tax and health care issues.
At Teague & Wetsel, PLLC, our attorneys can help you work through these concerns. By using various types of estate planning tools, we can make sure that your assets will transfer to whom you want, how you want, when you want — all while minimizing the cost of administration.
Clients appreciate that we take the time to explain everything in terms they understand. We want you to come away feeling confident that your estate plan accomplishes what you set out to do.
Do you need to revisit your estate plan objectives? Because life circumstances change more rapidly than ever, it is a good idea to have a knowledgeable lawyer review your estate plan to address anything that may require modifying. Call us and we will explain more about this process.
We can help you take advantage of various options for protecting your long- and short-term interests, including:
- Wills and trusts
- Advance health care directives
- Durable powers of attorney
- Gifting strategies
- Tax planning
- Family business succession planning
- Medicaid eligibility
- Long-term care planning
- Veterans’ pensions
- Retirement planning
Our attorney in this area, Glenn Teague, holds a master’s degree in tax and estate planning from New York University. His in-depth level of knowledge in these complex fields translates into more thorough solutions designed to fit your unique needs.
