Avoiding Probate

Considered estate planning ensures that your assets will be distributed according to your wishes in the most timely & cost-effective manner. By properly employing living trusts and joint ownership help you and your heirs avoid the long delays and substantial expense of going through Probate. There are also many tax benefits to avoiding Probate, & your Estate will not have to be approved and administered by the Probate Court. We will make sure that "your affairs are in order" and that your assets pass to your heirs & loved ones quickly, easily, with the greatest tax savings, and least expense, when the time comes.
