Estate Planning

estate planning processThere are many reasons for having an estate plan of your own. Chief among them is that if you do not have your own plan, the IRS and the state of Arizona will create one for you. They, not you, will decide how your assets are distributed and your estate is administered. The result? You, your heirs and your legacy will likely suffer some painful financial consequences.

Given the advantages of having your own estate plan, it is equally important to have the right estate administration attorney in Phoenix design your plan. Our estate planning lawyers in Scottsdale and Phoenix have a level of experience and knowledge of the law which allows us to go well beyond the traditional approaches of an estate planning attorney. We can help you and your family take advantage of recent changes to the law to protect as many of your assets as possible; minimize taxes; preserve your wealth for your enjoyment today and that of your loved ones after you are gone; prepare in advance the health care requirements that come with growing older; and much more.

We are conveniently located in Scottsdale, Arizona, just outside of Phoenix.

Here are just some of the services we provide:

  • Wills Lawyer
