All estate plans should include at least a will, a financial durable power of attorney and healthcare directives. In addition, trusts can be utilized to minimize taxes and administration costs, as well as manage estates both during life and after death. At MacLaren Law LLC, we can assist you in determining which documents are right for you and help create peace of mind that your legacy is secure.
No matter how small your estate may be, estate planning allows you, while you are still living, to ensure that your property will go to the people you want, in the way you want, and when you want. It permits you to save as much as possible in taxes, court costs and attorney fees, in addition to giving you comfort that your loved ones can mourn your loss without being burdened with unnecessary paperwork and confusion.
We assist clients in setting up and continuing their business in a manner that minimizes their risk for controversy down the road. The services provided include assisting you and your business with choosing the type of entity (whether it be a sole proprietorship, partnership, limited liability company, or corporation), drafting the governing documents, formation of agreements, and more.
