You've worked hard your whole life to provide for your family and make your loved ones more secure. Without advanced estate planning strategies, much of the significant assets you have accumulated may end up with the IRS and state taxing authorities.
Our firm regularly assists affluent families with such sophisticated planning strategies as Family Limited Partnerships, Limited Liability Companies, Spousal Access Trusts, Grantor Trusts, Sales to Irrevocable Trusts, Personal Residence Trusts, Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts, Irrevocable Life Insurance Trusts and a wide range of charitable gifting techniques to reduce federal and state estate taxes, gift taxes and generation skipping transfer taxes.
