What is the purpose of estate planning?

State and federal law allow you to create legal entities to hold and transfer your assets. When properly implemented, these estate planning tools serve several goals:

  • Shield your assets from liability and creditors
  • Minimize inheritance taxes
  • Create charitable gifts and trusts
  • Grant durable power of attorney
  • Provide financial security for your beneficiaries
  • Provide for a child or adult with special needs

Estate planning instruments are highly customizable based on individual needs and goals. The right combination of wills and trusts help ensure that your estate avoid probate, speeding your bequests to your heirs. For our clients with sizable holdings, we use specific tools for federal estate tax planning. After we’ve designed and implemented your estate plan, our probate and trust administration ensures that your intentions are fully implemented.

Reasonable rates for all estate planning services

Estate planning has long been a tool of the very wealthy, but that doesn’t mean that people of modest means can’t put the same protections in place. At Stubbins, Watson, Bryan & Witucky Co., L.P.A., we believe that everyone deserves asset protection, so we offer affordable flat rates for many of our estate planning services.
