Longmont, Colorado Estate Planning Attorneys

Complete and well thought out estate planning isn't just for the wealthy. You don't need to possess a massive estate to benefit from creating a sound financial plan or to realize some of the advantages that were once reserved for the rich.

Whether or not you realize it, you already have an estate, which is merely a way of describing your total assets. The wealth you've accumulated so far, and what may be added in the future, can be subject to many complex and changing laws and taxes. Careful investing and money management can help you attain wealth, changes in the tax laws can expose your assets to many vulnerabilities that a qualified estate planning attorney can anticipate and help you avoid.

Our estate planning attorneys will guide you through the available plans and options, no matter your wealth level. Securing your family's future by protecting those assets should be a high priority. A sound estate plan will take into consideration both your desire to protect your assets and your plans for their inheritance. You don't need to be listed in Fortune Magazine to be concerned about making sure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes.

The perfect estate plan, above all else, is personal. An experienced estate planning attorney can do more than list your options. Knowing which plans and methods can best help you achieve your personal objectives and how to implement them separates excellent plans from merely functional ones. You may already be familiar with Living Trusts, Wills, and the Federal Gift Tax laws, but knitting them all together in a plan that meets your needs is best handled by a competent lawyer.

There is ever-increasing family contention and litigation following a death. To make sure that your assets are secured, and that they will go to those you choose to receive them, requires a sound estate plan. No plan of this type can come about by accident, through non-attorney "trust services", or through internet forms and self-help software. A qualified estate planning attorney, with extensive training through Wealth Counsel and CEB, can help you achieve your goals and provide a solid plan to retain your assets.
