Estate Planning and Administration

Establishing a specific plan for the transfer of assets from one generation to the next is an important part of Craige & Fox’s practice. Listening to clients’ wishes, understanding their concerns, and drafting documents based on the individual’s family needs and preferences gives each client an individual estate plan. Of course, a discussion of any necessary steps to minimize estate taxes is also a part of the process. 

An estate planning attorney can offer a wide array of planning services to your and your family, including:

  • Leaving instruction for to whom to pass on your valuables
  • Choosing an inheritance manager or guardian for young children
  • Recording your preferences in case of serious disability before death
  • Transfer of business after death, disability, or retirement

Remember, estate planning should be an ongoing process. The attorneys at Craige & Fox, PLLC can help you not only draft your original documents but maintain and update any legal documents you have previously created. Personal finances and estate planning laws may change over time and your plans should reflect them.

Solidifying your Estate Planning early is the best way to avoid court-appointed guardianship in case of disability, division of assets, and publication of affairs through the courts. Starting your estate planning with a Will or a Living Trust assures fulfillment of your instructional wishes, however, working with a professional Estate Planning lawyer provides the greatest peace of mind that your loved ones will be protected.
