We Can Help You With Complex Trust Planning

 

Our attorneys will not take a one-size-fits all approach when it comes to crafting your estate plan. If you have a large estate, we can take steps such as setting up and administering a trust to minimize the estate tax burden on your beneficiaries, avoid probate and control who you want to leave certain assets to. Types of complex trusts include:

 

  • AB trust: Spouses can use this type of trust to minimize estate taxes.
  • Medicaid "Miller" trust: This type of trust can help you meet income requirements to be eligible for Medicaid-funded nursing home care.
  • Life insurance trust: This can shield the proceeds of a life insurance policy from the portion of your estate that is subject to estate taxes.

 

With extensive experience not just in estate planning law, but also in business and tax law, there is no issue that is too complex for our lawyers when it comes to helping you create a plan. We can use creative strategies that will protect your beneficiaries and honor your wishes for how you want your estate to be distributed.
