Planning for the Future: Wills, Trusts and Asset Protection

At The Bagert Law Firm we will work with you to design and implement an estate plan that will remember your loved ones, protect your assets, support organizations and causes you believe in, minimize taxes, and achieve both family and business goals. An estate plan usually requires the production of documents that protect you while you are living and honors your wishes after you are gone. Examples of these documents are: wills, trusts, powers of attorney, living wills, family partnerships and limited liability companies.

Living Wills

A living will is a document that allows you to express your wishes for your own end-of-life health care in the event you should become unable to do so.

Wills, Trusts and Asset Protection

A legal will gives you control over important decisions such as who will care for your children and how your assets will be distributed after your death. Our estate law attorneys can draft or update your will to reflect your current circumstances.

An important part of estate planning is to protect, to the fullest extent possible, the assets you have worked so hard to accumulate. Our lawyers will explain how estate planning tools can help minimize estate taxes and protect your assets from exposure to liability.

Successions and Estates

After a loved one has died, our attorneys can take care of all the tasks required to execute or probate the will, from inventorying the estate to paying final debts to transfer title of assets.

Business Succession Planning

We will assist you with planning for the changes in the management and ownership of a family business, both during your lifetime and after. One of the goals of business succession planning is to assure continuity and value for heirs, shareholders and employees.
