To meet the sophisticated estate planning needs of our clients, we can prepare the following:
- Wills (simple will; living will or health care instructions)
- Powers of attorney/Health care powers of attorney
- Trusts (irrevocable trust; life insurance trust; supplemental needs trust; tax planning trust; asset protection trust)
We also assist in estate administration (probate) or the after-death distribution of an estate to heirs and beneficiaries. There are two types of estates to be administered. In a decedent’s estate, you could have a probate estate which must be administered through the court. There is no judge for supervision, or no court watching the people. The assistance of an experienced attorney is a significant benefit to the administration process. In guardianship estates, the court appoints a guardian in the way of minor guardianship or guardianship for disabled persons.
At Gordon F. Gault, P.C., we help our clients plan for the future, whether creating an estate plan, or handling a business transaction or a real estate transaction.
