At the Law Offices of Randy Smith, we understand that estate planning is a complicated process. Our attorneys are fluent in the complex fiscal language of trusts, wills, and tax law. We’ll help you clearly understand your options, and formulate a sound strategy to make sure your assets are protected and preserved, and that your directives are carried out.
Wills & Trusts
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice. In estate planning that means that if you fail to designate a properly authorized executor for your will, your property will be distributed according to state law – which may not align with your wishes. Our attorneys know the ins and outs of current tax and estate law, and can formulate a plan to ensure your assets are dispersed as you choose. Our specific expertise includes revocable, irrevocable, charitable remainder, special needs, generational, and life insurance trusts.
Living Wills & Durable Powers of Attorney
While people are living and working longer than ever, many find themselves unable to continue their autonomy due to memory disorders or general cognitive decline. However, having the proper legal documents in place can ensure that decisions regarding your health and finance are carried out by a trusted source. Our staff understands the sensitivity around these situations, and have a variety of Advance Directives that can be put in place to protect you and your end-of-life preferences.
At the Law Offices of Randy Smith, much of our tax and estate planning practice is built around educating our clients about the details of the probate and how to effectively structure their assets to avoid it. It’s your choice – take the steps to ensure your heirs can assume their rightful property without court intervention, excessive costs, and public records.
