For clients with estates of all sizes, estate taxes can have a significant impact on the amount disbursed to beneficiaries. Our estate planning and administration lawyers incorporate extensive estate tax planning experience into the wide variety of options we review. After advising you on the benefits and risks of all available options, we design an individualized strategy tailored to help you reach your goals. We also assist with any forms regarding estate taxes that need to be completed and filed.
Another aspect of estate planning and estate administration that we handle is probate administration. This area of law, which is not entered until after an individual is deceased, includes many pure administrative tasks, such as filing a will, settling the estate, and arranging payment for any creditors. Also, we assist clients in taking action regarding any disgruntled heirs that may be raising issues regarding the validity of the will or the distribution of assets.
We help a wide variety of clients, ranging from established clients with extensive assets, to young couples just starting out. Our Maryland estate planning attorneys provides the guidance they are seeking, including specific strategies geared to help them accumulate assets for future family members, plan for college funding, create short and long-term retirement plans, and more. Estate planning can be a daunting task — let us guide you through the process step by step.
