When you come to our offices to discuss your needs, we will take the time to understand your goals and explore different scenarios. We will then select the estate planning tools that can enable you to achieve your goals, such as:
- A simple will to declare heirs and distribution of your estate
- Durable power of attorney to handle your personal affairs if you cannot
- Health care power of attorney for medical decisions on your behalf
- An advance directive (living will) that outlines your wishes for end-of-life care
- Guardianship or conservatorship for an incapacitated family member
- Designation of guardians for minor children
- Revocable or irrevocable trusts to protect your assets
- Charitable trusts or gifting
The Right Solutions For Your Circumstances
For many, there is no necessity or benefit to creating a trust; through a properly drafted right of survivorship under Arizona law, certain property passes to the spouse or children without probate or taxes.
If you have substantial or vulnerable assets, we can set up the appropriate type of trust to protect your wealth from potential and unknown creditors, avoid or minimize estate taxes and draw upon assets while setting wealth aside for your heirs. We also counsel business owners on entity formation and business succession strategies.
