Estate planning is about planning for the orderly distribution of your assets while minimizing estate and income taxes. Having a well-structured estate plan ensures that your wishes are carried out after a disability or death.
Some aspects of estate planning can seem complicated. The attorneys at Brady Cobin Law Group, PLLC seek to make the process straightforward. The compassionate and knowledgeable attorneys at Brady Cobin Law Group, PLLC strive to understand each client’s goals and values and to create a thoughtful plan tailored to the client’s needs.
The initial step in estate planning is an assessment of a client’s family and financial situation.
