Our lives are constantly evolving with major life changes such as marriage, the birth of a child, the incapacity of a parent or the death of a spouse. Other changes, like the sale of a family business or an unexpected inheritance, can affect your planning.
We believe in giving you outstanding advice so you can control the outcome of these life events, rather than allowing the events to control your life.
Our estate planning attorneys work with you to help build an estate plan and maximize the transfer of wealth. We listen to understand your goals. Effective planning gives you an opportunity to define how you wish to have your family cared for and how your assets will be invested, managed and distributed while minimizing transfer and inheritance costs.
Brown & Ruprecht attorneys are also experienced with probate and advise personal representatives through the entire probate process including opening and closing estates, collecting assets, and the filing and defending against claims. We also provide counsel on tax issues and tax return preparation.
